Luthier
Sugita Kenji is well-known in the handmade guitar world. His guitars, in terms of tone, design, and workmanship, each have the highest standards of handmade acoustic guitar. aNueNue and Sugita spent three years of R&D, selected air-dry wood, and humidity control facility. Three stage of design, brace design balance, neck profile balance and profile, and headstock sound reflex. The new design with 640mm shorter scale, produce clear mid-high sound, and deep bass. “Acoustic Future” is born.
Wood
LS500 used Moon Spruce as a top, and African Mahogany as a back and side wood.

Moon Spruce - Originating from Switzerland, Moon spruce possesses a white snowy appearance and a straight, tight wood grain. It can accommodate different climates exceptionally, which makes it one of the more durable and stable tone woods. It takes time to open up but its sound will have rich overtones in tandem with complex tonal harmonics.

African Mahogany - African mahogany has amber like brownish streaks. It a type of tonewood can be easily seasoned and is very stable to work with. It comes in a straighter grain which is great for an effective clear tonal transfer and it gives players a strong mid-range presence and a wonderful warmer overtone.

Top, back and sides are all solid wood. aNueNue uses wood that has been naturally air dried wood and are season for many years before even being put into production. All our solid woods are used for our high end pieces. All aNueNue’s solid wood pieces require time to open up and will develop an overall distinguished more complex harmonic tone quality.
Brace
Sugita Kenji design the Acoustic Future series, “Coherence Vibration” Air Oscillation. When string is plucked, the guitar top vibrates, it provided a coherence vibration against the body, neck, and headstock, and create a rich spectrum of sound. Light see through top is control within 2.5mm, the brace design stabilize the top, prevent twisting, and support the string tension. After three years of R&D, a full responsive sound is achieved, remove the hard frequency.
