Wood
MBS32E used Hawaiian Koa as a top, and Acacia Taiwan as a back and side wood.

Hawaiian Koa - Hawaiian Koa is native to Hawaii, and famous for its exquisite appearance. This type of tonewood is influenced by the age of the tree, the soil and even the level of elevation it grows in. These variances create darker grain patterns adding horizontal and vertical texture; and this color and striping creates the 3D like curly, tiger, flame appearance. When played, Koa produce a sweet warm mid-range and thicker luscious highs. With time Koa will unleash comprehensively stunning warmer overtone.

Acacia Taiwan - It is a hard dense wood with a beautiful unique wood grain. Acacia Taiwan brings with it a clear crisp high and a lavish full mid-range sound similar to that of mahogany. It is also a wood that sounds progressively distinguished as it ages and delivers a deeper resonating tone. The look and sound of Koa make people adore this exquisite wood.

aNueNue uses naturally air dried solid wood tops and are seasoned for years. Seasoned tops are stable, but does take time to open up and deliver a more beautiful transcendent overall tone. A solid top in comparison will possess a more complex timbre than a laminated top.
