What We Think

Condition: Used, Very Good

These solidbodies have tons of resonance and sustain for days. The ergonomic body shape makes for a very comfortable, playable instrument. Tonally they have all the bark and bite of a great Les Paul without the muddiness in the low end. This is a serious machine that is meant to rock, hard and loud. Bill has truly accomplished a wonderful feat with this guitar. There are not many luthiers known as well for their archtops that can crossover into the solidbody world and create a splash this big.

SP Luthier Notes: Fret polish and setup

Manufacturer's Description from Comins Guitars

With an unpretentious yet poised aesthetic evocative of the violin world, the Lyrist combines high end materials and appointments with proven design elements and precise setup work. The result is a refined musical instrument of nuanced resonance and versatility. The response is highly lyrical, exceptionally rich and articulate with an abundance of sustaining power.
