The Norman STUDIO ST40 CW GT PRESYS is all about sweet mellow tone. It is the same as the standard ST40 but with a gorgeous gloss top finish, a Fishman Presys Pro pickup system and a cutaway design. The unique mahogany-cherry-mahogany lamination used in the back and sides of the ST40 combines with a solid cedar top to produce a beautifully mellow sounding instrument. This sweet sounding guitar is at its best when used in more intimate musical settings. The built-in Fishman Presys Pro pickup system is truly professional, incorporating a 4-band graphic EQ, notch filter and phase control for precise tone-shaping and feedback avoidance. The cutaway is a great choice for players who want to play all the way up the instrument’s neck. Other standard features on all Norman guitars include: high-ratio sealed tuning machines, real wood rosettes, double-action truss rods, custom Tusq nuts, fully compensated saddles, and a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty.
