Sovereign  is Duke’s brother. The difference between them is that Sovereign’s top is made of solid cedar which makes its sound gentler and crisper sound than in spruce guitars.

Except 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 a few first notes on Sovereign it’s hard to resist the temptation to play jazz or accompany sung poetry.
