Like it's electric sibling, the acoustic President had a laminated spruce top, maple back and sides, and a maple/mahogany neck. It had the dot-inlaid neck position markers, headstock inlays and compensator tailpiece. Both were available in blonde and brunette finishes, but only the electric version was produced as a thinline model.
