The Albizzia Ursa guitar is a straight up, no frills guitar with an attitude. We went with a simple control layout so that great tone is easy to achieve, and right at your finger tips. The Albizzia top wood is a wood that is never used in the industry due to it's lack of supply. We like to think of it as the little brother to Ebony wood but with a more beige and blonde colouration. The oil finish of the guitar allows for fast playing action and a very natural feel. The guitar is very touch sensitive and responds extremely well to digging in and a heavy strumming hand. Dynamically, it is a very loud and assertive guitar. Grab a good old tube amp, crank it to 11 and hit a heavy chord on this guitar, you will feel it sing right back at you.
