Malaysian Blackwood is a premium tonewood that is well suited for all sorts of guitars. It has become a favorite of several well known high-end luthiers and it's popularity is growing. Denser than most Rosewoods, the sustaining, glassy tap tone draws comparisons to African Blackwood. It is slightly less brittle though, and unlike African Blackwood, most sets have attractive dark streaks.

The Vera 14-fret shape is complete redesign that is unique to Maestro Guitars. Taking the basic framework of a standard 14-fret 00, Hozen decided that a more rounded lower bout would result in a fuller sounding instrument despite its diminutive size.
