A stylish cutaway, the -Florentine Cutaway-

The sharp and stylish cutaway, called the “Florentine Cutaway,” is an eye-catching feature of the look.
The Florentine cutaway has a wide cutaway opening, making it easy to play in the higher frets, and also making it a popular body shape among players. However, it is very difficult to make a cutaway this sharp that also looks good, and it requires a lot of time and skill from the craftsmen since they have to make them by hand one by one.

HC body shape optimized and updated to HOFC

The new -HOFC- is based on the conventional “HC” body, but the thickness of the body has been changed.
The thickness of the body has been increased by 11mm compared to the conventional -HC- model, and the volume inside the body has been increased to achieve a richer bass sound and body resonance.
The increase in body volume also gives it a more expansive sound, making it a perfect match for fingerstyle, arpeggio, and other genres where you want to hear every note.

The skilled craftsmen who actually work on the ATB series bend and fit each unit by hand. The amount of force and time required varies according to the characteristics of the wood and grain. This is a technique that is only possible with the experience skill of an experienced craftsman but the results are worth the effort. This, however, makes it so it is not mass-producible, but the special feeling is unique among acoustic guitar shapes.

Headway Florentine Cutaway – Sound Profile

The tone of the Headway Florentine cutaway has a wide range that can be used for any genre of music, and it responds immediately to even the lightest of touches without losing a single note. The quick response allows the player to express their nuances in a straightforward manner, which is an essential element of a guitar, and this dynamism can be said to be the most distinctive feature of this guitar.

Extra slim U-neck that provides high playability

For the neck grip, which is crucial for playability, we implemented the “Extra Slim U-Neck,” Headway’s thinnest neck.
This neck is not only easy to grip, but also provides stability when playing technical phrases with the thumb on the back of the neck.

The neck is not only thin but also has carbon bars support to ensure high neck rigidity, which is important to Headway to make it a “long-lasting, reliable instrument. The increased rigidity of the neck also has a positive effect on the sound, with the sound coming out more smoothly and smoothly.

Modern “Y500” headstock & quill motif

The headstock is a stylish “Y500” headstock that matches the body shape. This headstock is a special headstock used by Masato Yasui, Headway’s custom builder and technical director, in his own custom line. The head is decorated with a simple quill motif inlay.

The headstock logo is a simple feather inlay with the “Headway” logo in a handwritten style.
Headway has long been using the eagle as a motif to express its intellectual image. The eagle has been a motif of Headway for many years, and the quill pen is a way to express a classy image. The quill was a major writing tool from the 5th to the 19th century and played an important role in official documents before the invention of the typewriter in the 19th century.
The new logo for Headway follows this image and is based on the image of a quill pen.

Top of the best-kept “Bear Claw Sitka Spruce”

Bear claw spruce was selected for the top material, named for its bear claw-like grain pattern.
The Bear Claw spruce is a rare and valuable material with a large, overall bear claw pattern, which is evident in both the look and sound.

The bear claw grain pattern makes the wood stiffer and tighter than normal Sitka spruce.
As a result, the sound has more bass tension and treble sparkle, and while utilizing the unique sound of the side-back wood, the base sound is created as the heart of the instrument, enhancing the overall harmony of its sound.

Flame mahogany sides and back with its characteristic wood grain

Mahogany is one of the most coveted of all acoustic guitar side back materials.
For this model, we utilized it with the most hardcore users in mind, for those that really look for its characteristic grain pattern. Flamed mahogany is a rare material among the many types of mahogany.

This time, the wood is colored a deep red, bringing out a sense of luxury and individuality while maintaining the atmosphere of the wood grain.
Flame mahogany is a slightly tighter material with flame grain, and the effect is reflected in the sound, which has a sweet and mild mahogany mid-bass sound as it is, with the treble added as the essence of the sound. The sound is attractive and can be played in a relaxed manner or with a lot of power behind it.

Rare Madagascar Rosewood fretboard and bridge

The fretboard and bridge are made of “Madagascar rosewood”, a material used for the first time on a HOFC model.
Madagascar rosewood, also known as “New Jakaranda” is one of the increasingly scarce rosewood species, and its difficulty in obtaining and distribution has been decreasing.

The combination with the HOFC model, which has more scenes to be played in fingerstyle, is an exceptional sound that not only rosewood fans but also various players will enjoy.
