This is all the tone and abalone a guitar picker could ever need! The AAA Adirondack top is gorgeous with straight grain and subtle, intermittent dark streaks. The East Indian Rosewood back and sides are equally stunning, with intense color contrast near the edges. This is some high quality wood, folks!
Tonally, it’s rich and precise. It delivers a nice close-fisted punch when you dig in, but imbues every chord with nuance and color, too. It feels very lively and responsive, almost daring you to try something difficult and new.
The snowflake inlay and abalone binding dazzle without distracting. They’re part of the package. It’s like an old-school mechanic who can fix your car without getting a drop of oil on his clean white shirt. This guitar offers a combination of functionality and class that’s sorely missed these days.
