Acoustic guitar and bass specialist Sire recently announced its venture into the electric guitar world with the Larry Carlton L7, H7 and S7 models.

Now, the company has unveiled a further collaboration with the American session legend, with all-new A4 acoustics. 

The range consists of two models – the Dreadnought-style A4-D and Grand Auditorium-style A4-G – with each offered in two finish variations: Natural and Vintage Sunburst.

The A4-D features a roasted solid spruce top with a mahogany back and sides, herringbone body binding, C-shaped mahogany neck – with a dovetail neck joint – and a 20-fret, 16-inch-radius, rolled-edge rosewood fingerboard.

Electronics come by way of Sire's proprietary SIB Acoustic EQ system, with a single piezo pickup under the saddle and an internal condenser microphone. The system offers users Master Volume, Master Tone and Mic Blend controls.

The A4-G features a very similar feature-set to that of the A4-D, including the same body wood construction and neck profile/material. The main difference between the two, of course, is the body shape.

The Larry Carlton A4-D and A4-G are available now for $499/£449 each. For more information, head to Sire.
