There are many reasons to love African Mahogany: it is beautiful, it sounds great, and it is lightweight. The Modern Satin was created to celebrate the sound and beauty of this tonewood. New for 2015 the Modern Satin is available in a Black Satin finish. The thin layer of satin finish allow the neck and body to resonate freely, producing a wide variety of tones from warm articulate Jazz lines to tight aggressive Metal riffs. Modern Satin's tone is always loud and clear.
