Super Lani Series used Spruce as a top, and Acacia Taiwan as a back and side wood.
Spruce - Spruce is straight grained, yellowish white in color, light weight and strong in structure. Although Spruce takes time to open up, it relinquishes crispy clear sounds over a wide tonal spectrum. It is excellent for both strumming and finger-style playing.
Acacia Taiwan - It is a hard dense wood with a beautiful unique wood grain. Acacia Taiwan brings with it a clear crisp high and a lavish full mid-range sound similar to that of mahogany. It is also a wood that sounds progressively distinguished as it ages and delivers a deeper resonating tone. The look and sound of Koa make people adore this exquisite wood.
aNueNue uses naturally air dried solid wood tops and are seasoned for years. Seasoned tops are stable, but does take time to open up and deliver a more beautiful transcendent overall tone. A solid top in comparison will possess a more complex timbre than a laminated top.
After all these custom improvements we that made, we also wanted to showcase the rich life of Hawaii on the rosette of the Super Lani Series, so we laser-etched a series of Hawaiian petroglyphs around the sound hole. Starting clockwise we have: a fisherman, a Hono—or Hawaiian Sea Turtle, a dog, paddling men, a hula dancer with a gourd, a fishbone, the Tree of Life, a mountain goat and finally the Rainbow Man, which is also our logo. Rosewood binding was added for better protection to the body.
The Super Lani Series has a classical headstock design made with a rosewood veneer in maple logo. The aNueNue custom tuners with 1:16 gear ratio for precise tuning.
Rosewood is a hard tone wood that with open pores. It's a stable wood to be a fretboard, and also adaptable to climate changes. The fret positions is designed with maple inlayed. The 19-frets design allows for endless tonal possibilities.
Bridge / Saddle
The smiley-shaped rosewood bridge helps support the string tension. The Synthetic Bone for the nut which is very hard and articulate. This helps the strings to vibrate and to have a deep resonance.
