Beyond All Expectations

Think “FM Centauri”

---- To get the richest expression out of all your gear, you need the best front end possible and the ability to adapt it to your changing needs. The FM Centauri gives you just that!

----The FM Centauri is the first guitar model ever to offer the “Acoustic Resonance Internal Enhancement System" designed in-house by Brian Nelson. Through 20 years of careful refinement and playing in real world situations, this G-N exclusive internal design structure was fully realized. By first envisioning and then unceasingly pursuing new possibilities in putting even more depth, detail and imagery into guitar voicing, Brian pushed through old design barriers while retaining the classic vintage character that drew many discerning players to the instrument in the first place.

----Some might consider the ARIES design a “chambered body” approach, but that would be selling it short. There is so much more going on! This internal design frame combines a network of finely tuned, internal acoustic filtering subsystems working together to allow an all new depth of expression and nuance as well as an increase in player control. It will quickly enable you with new modes of expressiveness and fill your thoughts with what musical wonders you may be the first to ever experience. The FM Centauri also allows you to easily make the final choices as to what that "holy grail" tone is really all about in ways never before possible. The result is a striking similarity between the glorious sound you hear in your head and the one coming out of the amp.

----Available with a variety of options, the FM Centauri is the one that will get you there!
