The Sanden guitars are built with the highest quality of wood and materials available, hand picked and all solid. The standard guitars has a Sitka spruce top and East-Indian rosewood or sapele back and sides. The neck is made of perfect quartersawn mahogany. The fingerboard is ebony and the bridge and bridge pins are East-Indian rosewood, the bindings are always wood. The beautiful rosette is made out of layers of linnings of black and white wood veneer and abalone. All guitars come with a zero fret, for optimal balance and intonation. The machine heads are Schertler black or gold with ebony buttons. Included in the price is an almost unbreakable Hiscox hard-shell case. Sound wise I spend a great deal of time and effort in making the guitars well balanced and keeping the craftsmanship at the highest level possible. When you decide to experience and explore a Sanden Guitar, it’s my firm hope you will think I have over-acheived your highest expectations.
In my search for my heritage it started with a dreadnought which showed a lot of interest. I said to myself, why don´t I do more of the kind. Nice traditional looks and a choice of sapele with tobacco sunburst. Well, I am very satisfied with the outcome, and the looks and the sound is just great. They fit right in to my range without competing with our ”custom”guitars.
The Roots series are all solid mahogany with a high gloss tobacco sunburst on the body and the neck has a smooth satin lacquer. The neck has also an ebony fingerboard and east-indian rosewood headveneer. Schertler tuners in satin black with ebony buttons, bone saddles and rosewood bridge pins with abalone dots . The head is also adorned by the old style Sanden logo. The rosette is made of a single ring of herringbone.
You can also choose a twelve fret neck and an open head design on the R32 and R42. Extra option on all models are also a special designed case in off white leather imitation with dark brown sticking. LR Baggs pickup is available on all models except the R15 and R28.
