Actuator

An actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.

Simple Controls

Three simple knobs let you adjust the amount of effects and the line out volume level. Keeping the controls small minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, which reduces acoustic sound loss.

(A) Chorus Control

(B) Reverb Control (Room / Hall)

(C) TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control

* Pressing the TA Switch for longer than 0.3 seconds activates the TA function.

* When a cable is connected to the line out jack, the line out volume can be adjusted by rotating knob (C).

* The reverb type switches from Room to Hall around the 12:00 position.

Scalloped Bracing

The CSF series utilizes newly-designed scalloped bracing that delivers rich, full-bodied resonance. The use of forward-shifted construction maintains the strength of the body while maximizing the vibration of the guitar's top.

Newly-Designed Battery Box

The battery box integrated into the end-pin jack requires fewer holes in the body. This reduces acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable form the jack to a PA or amp to use as an acoustic-electric guitar.
