The SL Series combines the beautiful tone of a Solid Bunya soundboard with the price of Layered veneer back. Although this is the entry level to Pratley acoustic guitars we have stayed true to our 3 major design principles of Tone, Feel and simple elegant aesthetics.
The Stage model body is a mid-size shape that fits in between the concert models and the Mini OM models.
We are always proud to use sustainable Australian native tone-woods and the SL series continues that tradition. The neck is plantation Victorian Ash which has great strength to weight and stability. The back & sides are made in Australia from high quality Australian tone-wood veneers and the soundboard is 'A' grade QLD Bunya.
