What We Think

Wow! This is a huge instrument in every possible sense. Bubinga seems one the best choices for a 12-string. It's rich, but EXTREMELY well balanced. It lets the courses speak for themselves while still heaping on just the right amount of overtones. 

The top is explosive, as usual. That's the kind of wood you get if you LIVE IN AN ADIRONDACK FOREST, I guess ;0

Gloriously looks and tone that will send shivers down your spine. 

Every guitarist needs a 12-string, and this one's a virtual orchestra.

About Manufacturer

A few years back a wonderful man named Robin Boucher drove to Sound Pure studios all the way from Canada. In his back seat, nestled in lovely tweed cases, he had some of the finest acoustic guitars to ever cross our northern border. We became immediate friends and his work was mind-blowing. The clarity of the tone, the immaculate fit and finish, the effortless playability. To top it all off, Robin got his start as a WOOD DEALER. He happens to live in an Adirondack red spruce forest!
