This Jasmine model is an orchestra-style electro-acoustic, with venetian-style cutaway. It looks very stylish and sounds even better thanks to its Fishman Isys III preamp system, which also has an in-built-tuner. This is an affordable guitar that's great for live performance and offers great playability.
The JO-37CE features a select solid-spruce top with Jasmine's Advanced "X" Bracing, and sapele back and sides for superior tone. The slim neck and short 24 3/4" scale length provide comfortable feel and exceptional playability that makes this orchestra-style guitar a dream to play. The onboard Fishman Isys III preamp system offers a built-in digital tuner and three-band EQ for clear, natural sound and rock-solid amplified performance. Other great features include a rosewood fingerboard and bridge, chrome die-cast tuners for great tuning stability, ivory body binding, beautiful abalone rosette, pearl inlays and full gloss Natural finish.
There are many different types of bracing patterns. The most common and enduring pattern used on steel-string acoustic guitars is called "X" bracing; so named for the two braces that form an "X" by crossing each other in the middle of the pattern.Not all "X" bracing patterns are created equal, however. Jasmine's "Advanced X Bracing" system features a "forward-shifted" "X" bracing pattern that places the braces closer to the soundhole, producing a livelier, more open sound with improved definition and note detail.
The quartersawn braces provide exceptional stability, with a scalloped design that reduces weight and lets the top vibrate more freely, resulting in better sound. A solid rosewood bridge plate rounds out this remarkable package by providing superior balance and note separation.
