Pratley Premier series is a very well refined and executed acoustic with Classic Style. Available with either Maple Silkwood or Blackwood back and sides the Premier features a lovely AAA Qld Blue Fig Soundboard. The Fig soundboard is a beautiful Australian native that was pioneered by Martin Pratley in the mid to late 2000's. It has a sweet rounded finish to notes with a good mid range presence and some natural compression. It can be thought of as fitting in somewhere between a Spruce or Bunya toped guitar and a Blackwood or Koa toped guitar.
