Discover the musical marvel crafted for the discerning musician – the Lag Tramontane 118 T118ASCE. Hailing from a lineage of guitars known for their distinctive craftsmanship, this instrument stands out with its khaya body, an exemplary variant of mahogany known for its exceptional stability. Drawing upon my own experiences with guitars, there’s a distinct sonic magic that mahogany brings, producing warm and enveloping sounds, and the khaya iteration of this guitar accentuates this quality.

The soundboard, made of solid red cedar, is not just a cosmetic choice. Red cedar is renowned for its unparalleled acoustic properties. Think of it like the rich, velvety notes in a vintage wine. This top contributes to the warm, sweet, and balanced sounds that the T118s are famous for. Whether you’re a fan of the focused precision that an auditorium body offers or the raw power of a dreadnought, the T118s ensures every note resonates with clarity and depth.

Delving deeper into its anatomy, the Tramontane’s neck, also forged from khaya, ensures uniformity in tone and stability. Remember those old tales of musicians seeking out instruments with a singular wood type? It’s all about that tonal consistency. The fingerboard and bridge, fashioned from the robust Brown BrankoWood, enhance the guitar’s durability and playability.

Speaking of playability, its electronics are nothing short of cutting-edge. The Astro-Lâg electronics embedded in this model offer a plethora of options for the artist, ranging from volume adjustments to a 3-band equaliser, brilliance controls, notch, phase, and even an integrated tuner. Ever played on a stage where the acoustics were less than favourable? That’s where the notch and phase controls come in handy, helping to combat feedback and phase issues.

Its glossy finish not only looks visually appealing but also offers a tactile sensation every time you hold it. If there’s one thing I’ve learnt, it’s that aesthetics and functionality can indeed go hand in hand. The satin black hardware juxtaposed against the natural wood adds a touch of modern sophistication, while the die-cast tuning pegs, with a ratio of 1:18, ensure your guitar remains perfectly in tune. Weighing in at a comfortable 2.87 kg, the Lag Tramontane is as much a pleasure to hold as it is to play.

The Lag Tramontane 118 T118ASCE is not just another guitar – it’s an experience. Designed for those who demand versatility without compromising on quality, it’s a testament to what happens when superior materials meet impeccable craftsmanship.


Khaya Body: The Heart of Warmth

Solid Red Cedar Soundboard

Beyond its beautiful exterior, the solid red cedar soundboard is an acoustic genius. Its unique properties produce rich, velvety tones, ensuring that every strum and pluck stands out with clarity.

Distinct Brown BrankoWood Elements

The robustness of Brown BrankoWood, used in the fingerboard and bridge, accentuates the guitar’s durability and playability. It’s not just a material choice; it’s a commitment to longevity and unparalleled performance.

Every curve, every glossed surface, speaks of a design philosophy where aesthetics meets functionality. Its natural colours, complemented by satin black hardware, make the Lag Tramontane a visual and tactile delight.
