Boulder Creek Guitar, Acoustic Electric Solitaire, Cedar ECR3-N
The Boulder Creek ECR3-N Solitaire Series Cedar dreadnought acoustic guitar was designed with the unique top port for the player to better hear the instrument, but the lack of a front soundhole serendipitously resulted in an amazing front sound projection- since the soundboard increased in size and produced more treble, midrange, and overall volume while the sound port on the top of the guitar produced and enhanced the omni-directional low range frequencies. Solitaire models feature a solid cedar top with solid mahogany back and laminated mahogany back and sides. Boulder Creek guitars are specifically made with solid tops and backs for optimum tone and with laminated sides for additional strength and durability. Models are available in solid Sitka Spruce or solid Red Cedar top versions, with backs and sides of solid Rosewood or solid Mahogany. Laminated sides provide maximum strength and stability. The standard factory specs of Boulder Creek guitars emphasize a smooth low string action for enhanced playability with dovetail neck joints for optimum sustain and tone. Die-cast tuning machine heads have an 18:1 gear ratio for accurate tuning, and all models feature a 25 5/8" scale and a nut width of 1 11/16". All Boulder Creek Acoustic Electric Models are equipped with the new AB4-T Active Balanced Acoustic System with on-board tuner. The specially designed cable-type saddle transducer reduces the "clunk" that is inherent in traditional piezo pickup systems. The AB4-T System also feature both balanced and unbalanced outputs for maximum signal and noise reduction in both stage and studio applications. The patent-pending "SBS" Suspended Bracing System is featured on all Boulder Creek Solitaire Series guitars. This innovative system allows the top to vibrate more freely than conventional X-Type braces and delivers a the tone, sustain, and balance only provided by top line instruments.

"The first truly original innovation in acoustic guitars that we have seen for years. The “SBS” Suspended Bracing System creates a Tone Monster acoustic that blows away the sustain, balance and projection of other high-end guitars that are two and three times the price. Truly Amazing!!!" - The Music Motel Staff
