HOM shape with deep body
We adopted HOM shape with deeper body for almost the first time ever with Headway ATB series to respond to customers’ demand for small sized guitar with a deep sound. The body depth is around 117mm at the body end and it is almost as deep as HD. With long scale (648mm) and deeper body, HOM-115 produces a wider range of frequency responses and louder sound without impairing the playability.
Semi rear-shifted bracing
We adopted semi rear shifted bracing placement for the first time on the 2019 limited 115 models. Compared to our standard rear-shift bracing (ARS bracing), it has a slight more bass response and we concluded it would match the HOM deep body better. Since the X bracing is placed near the bridge, it strongly reinforces the soundboard reducing the risk of problem
Selected tonewood materials
1. "Deadstock" Adirondack red spruce
The 2019 limited 115 models features Adirondack red spruce tops that have been treasured for more than 50 years at our wood supplier’s warehouse. This carefully selected wood material contributes to the sound as well as the impressive texture and atmosphere.
2. Kingwood and Granadillo 3 piece back
2019 HOM-115DB2 is crafted with selected Kingwood and granadio three piece back and Kingwood sides. Kingwood has intense appearance with distinctive grains to give the guitar a unique look. Compared to Madagascar rosewood of 2019 HOM-115DB1, it has a peak on slightly higher frequencies and produces a little bit brighter, but not too stiff sound that cut through the mix.
3. Honduran mahogany one piece neck
