About This Listing

Bolivian rosewood in combination with an Adirondack spruce top combine to make a loud warm sound in a guitar that feels right. The neck profile is a thick broad D-shape that tapers near the body We set the guitar up with tuned intonation and a medium low action for smooth play out of the box.

Maximum responsiveness is built in. The braces are reinforced with graphite and shaved down until the minimal thickness to handle the tension of the strings. More response and stronger resonance can be felt in the body as the result of this style.

Play in tune on the whole fretboard with intonation you can adjust until perfect. The saddle is not a regular compensated saddle. Each string has a separate saddle that allows the end of the string to be moved individually. This extra compensation gives perfect intonation at the saddle

Our guitars are usable. A floating fingerboard allows for easy access to the high frets and allows the player to change the break angle. The provided key can be inserted into the heel stock and with a small twist the neck angle to the body changes. As the guitar ages and goes through the seasons it changes and changes the action. Our stock setting is to keep it as low as possible, but this is your choice to make not ours. You have the power to play with low action or move it higher in minutes.

A k&K pure mini is installed in this guitar. It has three contact pads that sit beneath the soundboard. This provides excellent reproduction of the tone.

We want this guitar to last for generations. We will provide any repairs or warranty work needed at no cost. The price includes a hard-shell case and shipping.

This is a hand-crafted guitar;  it has been played before. As such, it’s not factory perfect, there are marks, imperfections and mistakes wrapped up in it. Everything problem we can eliminate, we do. Each one goes through a quality inspection by my Dad and I before dispatch. If asked, we can recite every mistake that can’t be removed. As soon as the strings are put on the guitar starts collecting scratches. These features give the guitar soul and is part of the trade-offs of having a hand-built instrument.
