About This Listing

A distinguished, smooth and unique guitar. Playability and sound are at the forefront due to the Brazilian rosewood and well grained western red cedar. A rich warm sound with a long resonant decay. Excellent projection and a punchy sound are brought by the cedar. Each note is articulate and distinct. The luthier worked with care on each aspect of the guitar to ensure quality.

The marquetry and artistry go the next step. Waves border the edges and snakewood binding wraps around every edge with black-white-black accents. Amboyna burl is both on the headstock and within the sound hole.  Snakewood fretboard is inlay on the ebony neck.

This includes a couple inventions and innovations unique to Portland Guitar. One is the patented split saddle bridge. Each saddle nut can be adjusted to ensure perfect intonation up the fretboard. Springs are used to make sure the saddles stay in place when tuning. In addition, a cantilever neck is utilized to change the action to your preference. It is accessible from the heel where the strap pin is. A, provided, allen wrench is inserted and with a small turn the action is changed. The next innovation is a curved carbon fiber enhanced bracing system with optimized brace strength. This allows the guitar to be more responsive and resonant.

The action is set medium-low with some tilt from the neck. The fretboard is floating which allow for easier access to the higher frets. The neck shape is a medium thick rounded D-shape that tapers up the fretboard. There are 20 frets total and 14 clear to the body

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.

This is built to last for generations. We will provide any repairs, support and warranty work needed at no cost. The price includes a hard-shell case and shipping.

 

This is a hand built instrument. As such it has handmade imperfections. We work our best to eliminate every defect that we find, but some cannot be fixed, hidden or used. It is the nature of craft and gives the guitar part of its soul.
