Offered is a Hippner Laurel OM Auditorium Acoustic Guitar with Taylor Softcase. Handcrafted by Washington luthier Darren Hippner in 2020. If you're looking at this, then you know that Hippner instruments are the real deal. His guitars are sought after by pros and enthusiasts in the know and would occasionally sell thru connoisseur shops like Dream Guitars for $3~6K+. This one features a solid Sitka Spruce top with Indian Laurel back and sides, exotic snakewood board and trim, MOP inlays, Brazillian Rosewood faceplates, bone nut and saddle, ebony pins, and top of the line Gilbert USA ebony tuners. The tone is bold, clear, and articulate - a fingerstyle player's dream. This was from a small batch of Indian tonewood OMs that Hippner built during the 2020 lockdown. Handcrafted USA quality throughout, with light shop wear and cosmetic blems as could be expected with artisanal builds (see all pics). Guitar will be shipped in the premium Taylor USA Softcase pictured. Please review all photos carefully as they're an integral part of the item description.
