What We Think

An absolutely tremendous take on the beloved X-braced LGs of yore!  These OG models from Iris Guitars are pure, woody, lively joy in a box.  If comfort, condition, and/or price have ever been concerns in your search for THE old school, smallbody guitar, you can consider the search over with this beauty!  We particularly adore the clean look of the natural finish, tortoise binding, and tortoise guard on this instrument.  

Manufacturer's Description from Iris

Every Iris Guitar is made by hand in Burlington, Vermont in the same small shop as Circle Strings with the same fine attention to detail and quality as these world class instruments. Iris Guitars has streamlined the build process by focusing on one model with limited options to keep it simple and help make a more affordable version of the incredible instruments coming out of the same shop for years.


The OG Model was the original Iris that put us on the map. It has a comfortable 25-inch scale and an equally comfy C-shape neck. It has a warm and dry voice, with an nice midrange response. It takes equally well to being strummed with a pick or fingerpicked, in standard or open tunings, and it has a generous amount of headroom and projection.

Iris Guitar Company

About Manufacturer

IRIS GUITARS are the new production model manufactured by Circle Strings and Fairbanks Guitars. After many years of custom guitar building, we are proud to introduce an affordable, high-end acoustic guitar line, MADE IN THE USA, that is the perfect tool for any beginner or professional musician. Making an affordable, high end acoustic guitar is not an easy task at such a small level. Because of this, this is a bare bones model with basic appointments to excite even the serious guitar aficionado. If you have been interested in a Fairbanks or Circle Strings guitar, but can't afford it, this is the perfect introduction to our guitars. Our goal is to make the best guitars we can for the player.
