The Sigma GBCE-3-SB+ features a solid European Alpine spruce top, providing the player with a versatile, clear and powerful sound. Alpine spruce produces more 'ringing' tones than other spruce varieties, resulting in a bell-like sound with an abundance of overtones. The versatility on offer allows the GBCE-3-SB+ to respond superbly to a wide range of playing styles with ease. In addition, the solid top is attached to blackwood back and sides that not only offer a stunning visual, but projects a unique tone with a balanced tonal output, top-end shimmer and the richness found in rosewood. Its blackwood body also adds warmth and resonance to the guitar's overall tone whilst closely resembling mahogany within the mid-range. Furthermore, the combination of tonewoods provides the player with a versatile instrument particularly well-suited to a variety of picking styles but will also accommodate medium strength strumming.

Its versatility makes the GBCE-3-SB+ able to handle both lighter fingerpicking styles to a variety of strumming patterns with ease, perfect for adding a range of dynamics to a player's individual musical style. Furthermore, the grand OM body also offers a comfortable playing experience due to its curvaceous shape and nipped in waist, providing comfort throughout both seated and standing performances. For added comfort, the GBCE-3-SB+ has a venetian cutaway profile, offering easy access to upper frets and more challenging chords.
