What We Think

Now -this- is what a 12 string is supposed to sound like!  An absolute waterfall of shimmering, 3 dimensional, bass-to-treble balanced tone issues forth from this guitar with the slightest right hand touch.  Lay into it and it just gives more and more and more.  The landscape a solo player, either live or in the studio, can create with this RS-12 is truly breathtaking.  We have flat out never played a 12 string as comfortable and downright inviting as this instrument--no fight in this one!  A knock out through and through!

Manufacturer's Description from Goodall

"The Standard is a guitar with a difference!"

The Standard series, with its graceful curving lines, is a larger-bodied guitar with a clarity that is uncanny! The amazingly rich, powerful bass and midrange is matched to a brilliant treble and shimmering harmonic overtones. Arguably the most balanced guitar available from Goodall Guitars, James feels that the Standard model is the crowning achievement of his luthierie career. With approximately the same proportions as the ever popular dreadnought shape, the resemblance stops with the size. More than one musician has commented that "this guitar makes others sound like they are stuffed full of cotton."

"This guitar makes others sound like they are stuffed full of cotton, you have to hear it to believe it."

Whether you are in your living room, at the recording studio, or on stage, this one excels. Truly it can be said that this is the Standard by which all other acoustic guitars are measured.
