Esperanza is our interpretation of a semiacoustic jazz guitar. The shape is based on our acoustic model Naoko but with a different cutaway that gives easy access to the highest frets.

This is the 4th version, completely made of mahogany and ebony, somehow the counterproject to the 3rd one, the all maple version. Inspired by the fat old jazz guitars by Gibson, we wanted to give our modern concept a more traditional spin: Conservative, dark colors, flatwound strings and humbuckers. But of course it differs a lot from our inspirational source: it has a fast attack, is very light, has a good sustain, is easily playable. But the best thing about this guitar is the sound. The neck humbucker by Harry Häussel is amazing. You should try this!
