Wood
Star S Series used Spruce as a top, and Mahogany 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.

Mahogany - Quarter-sawn straight grain mahogany is light weight and hard, subsequently it delivers a fast tonal transfer, a bright and organic tone and the bass is on the warmer side.

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.
