What We Think

Playing this guitar is like driving a Rolls Royce down a wide-open desert road 

It's crisp and buttery at the same time 

You can take it to either extreme of the tonal spectrum and it never loses its sweetness 

It responds to the slightest touch, but can also take a heavy hand with ease

There's a cohesion to the tone that's just lovely 

It's even balanced enough for finger-style 

You'd be hard-pressed to find a smoother sounding and playing Jazz-box than this 

Plus, the 4A hand-graduated maple is so beautiful and dimensional you might get dizzy if you stare at it too long
