The 1847 Lightning has a polished solid comb made of stainless steel that gives the instrument not only extra weight (155 g / 5.5 oz) but also adds a very resonant component to the sound.

Featuring shiny stainless steel cover plates with the special 1847 3D-imprint;  the side vents are completely rounded at the front and opened wide at the back, for optimum sound projection towards the audience.

All parts (even the rivets and screws) are made of anti-corrosive materials.  The 1847 Lightning is designed to be a lifetime companion and ready for any musical challenge.
