T.Burton Sovereign

Sovereign  is Duke’s brother. The difference between them is that Sovereign’s top is made of solid cedar which makes its sound gentler, with a subtle amount of crispness compared to spruce guitars.

Along with a cedar solid top, it has mahogany sides and back so its sound is balanced and crisp.

Sovereign is also very loud but its loudness is spread evenly over every string.

D’Addario EXP strings are mounted with technology called NanoWeb that increases strings’ vitality by four times. Sovereign has grover-type tuning machines which facilitate tuning.

After playing the first few notes on Sovereign it’s hard to resist the temptation to play jazz or accompany a songwriter.
