Clearport Summit M/S (mahogany and spruce)
Summit M/S ($2499 w/case). Solid mahogany back and sides, solid spruce top, dreadnought body, nitrocellulose lacquer finish (gloss body, matte neck), ebony fingerboard and bridge, black trim, mahogany adjustable neck, Grover tuners, pearl dot inlay, rosewood head veneer with "Clearport" pearl inlay. Mahogany gives a brighter, more transparent tone with a percussive attack on each note. The Thurman Multi-dimensional Sound Ports increase the response by releasing excess trapped energy. This gives the guitar a faster attack and more sustain but because the interference in converted into usable sound the tone is very clear and beautiful. Playing a Clearport guitar is a totally new and different experience with benefits for both the player and the audience.
