Fine Hand-made Guitars
This is my own original design: another small
guitar with a big voice! I designed this one from scratch and I am
pleased with all aspects of the guitar: sound, comfort, and looks. It is approximately the same size as a Martin 0.
The sound is remarkably big, full, with plenty of bass and very strong and well-defined midrange and treble.
this is a superb fingerstyle guitar. It is really fun to play. And it's amazingly compact. I can play this one sitting in
the driver's seat of my Honda Civic as (I sit in the ferry queue -- don't worry, hands on the wheel!) -- without opening the window.
(I can do this with the Size 1, and B00 also.)
This guitar was inspired by the Martin 0-45 played by Joan Baez:
B0 in Carpathian (European) spruce and Madagascar rosewood
People are pretty amazed at the big sound of this little guitar. (Note that both European spruce and Madagascar rosewood
would be upcharges from the guitar base price.) This guitgar has abalone trim around the top and an abalone rosette.
The bridge is a pyramid bridge to keep with the style of the guitar size and its early 20th-century inspiration.
