What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

WOW!  This is why we care about and believe in the power and value of a boutique flattop guitar--classic, timeless inspiration drawn from the past, interpreted and expressed with all the skill and knowledge a modern craftsman has to offer.  You see it and you hear it--truly classic and truly personal, all at the same time.  Tonally, you can expect punch and brawn with an ever present depth and subtle overtone response.  Visually, the headstock, burst, and that insane set of figured Walnut will catch eyes every. single. time.  Hats off and a standing ovation to you, Mr. Char!

SP Luthier Notes: Setup Confirmed

Manufacturer's Description from Other

All my steel string models with standard appointments would include a choice of Curly Maple or East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides, Sitka, Engelmann, or Cedar for the top and a choice of Rosewood or Ebony for the fingerboard. Any considerations having to do with neck size, scale length, nut width, and general action set up are, of course, included. An arch top hard shell case is also included. I make several models of steel string guitars based on vintage period guitars made by Martin, Gibson, and Larson, to name a few, as well as my own inspired models.
