With its satin finish, the Adam Black O-3TE is pleasingly soft to the touch when you first pick it up, with a lovely smooth neck. The solid spruce top has a darker vintage hue which we really like, set off nicely by the rich sapele back and sides. Fret a chord, and the neck reveals itself to have a slight V shape - not too pronounced - but enough to provide a nice purchase in your hand.
The solid spruce top produces a guitar with complex and refined sound quality, rewarding the improving and seasoned guitarist alike. Being a smaller body, the O3TE is very comfortable to hold, while the shorter scale length (the distance between the nut and saddle) results in a much easier playing experience, especially for those with smaller hands. Overall, this is a guitar which any guitarist will enjoy playing. The discreet soundhole mounted Fishman electronics make it the ultimate package, allowing it to be easily and reliably amplified for live performance.
