Meet The Shari Ulrich Songbird ~ O Body

Craven Tenor Guitars is honored to create with Ms. Shari’s direction, our beloved, Shari Ulrich Songbird 0 body tenor guitar.

Created in the tradition of the finest 0 Body Tenor ever made, the Songbird is nothing but exquisite craftsmanship and the finest sound woods available today.

Hand selected aged solid Sitka Spruce adorns the top to present bright tones and resonate in a loud voice that’s clear without being shrill. The hand picked solid Mahogany back reverberates in warm rich tones that can only be achieved by the finest of guitars. The beauty of the woods are embellished with abalone binding. Combined together, the Songbird is ideal for the writer, entertainer or novice player who values heirloom quality over mass produced commodity guitars.

Along with the beautiful construction lies our truss rod neck assuring longevity and play ability for the years ahead and when the lights go on and you walk on stage, our onboard CRAVEN XLR8 equalizer is there, ready for you to dial in the sound you richly deserve.

Your Shari Ulrich Songbird is protected in its embroidered, lush lined hardshell case for safe transport and lifelong protection of your investment.
