The Nittaku Acoustic LG was made using the same principles used in making string instruments. The materials used for this blade are thicker and softer than the materials used in the Nittaku Violin. This provides the Acoustic with stable characteristics when attacking and blocking. This version has a larger handle which makes the blade heavier and thus slightly faster than the regular Nittaku Acoustic blade. It could also be recommended for players who find the standard handle size is too thin. Made in Japan.
