Select Spruce For A Select Instrument
The DR-220S features a Solid Sitka Spruce top. Spruce is one of the finer tonewoods with a rich complex tone that begins to breath and improve with age the more its played. So play the DR-220S as much as you can! The body is made from Select mahogany and the bridge is glued rosewood. There is a lot of stress put on a guitar between the nut and bridge and rosewood has proven to be both a long lasting and perfect compliment to a Sitka Spruce Top. The classic black vintage style pickguard is easy to spot from stage or across the room and has the iconic "Epiphone" E.
