Details Instrument Specs About the maker:
 
"Thermotimber" is a heat treatment procedure for wood, usually used for construction and carpentry woods. Tampere University of Technology, Luthiery department of Ikaalinen School of Arts and Crafts and a company named "Suomen Ekopuu" has developed a special heat treatment procedure which is suitable for tonewoods. The normal "Thermotimber" procedure has some unwanted side effects for tonewood (decreasing elasticity, decreasing bending strength and colour changes). Certain special modifications to the procedure give many great advantages including increasing the speed of sound and resulting in a lighter weight, These can be reached without any unwanted effects mentiioned above.

On X-O, the relic finish is done with a water-based stain straight to wood, natural shellac and very slight amount of nitrocellulose to neck, back and sides. No sealers or fillers are used. Compared to a normal finish, vibrating mass is reduced, and the guitar is more sensitive, clear and crispy. It really feels like an old Selmer.
