What We Think

This guitar sounds deep. It's a sonic spatial illusion. You hear some high mids dead center, but back there somewhere is a reservoir off bass ready to be tapped at a moment's notice. The design is half old-time and half modern. The neck is as comfortable as it comes, and the body shape is what I'd call "voluptuous". Wes is a brilliant artist who always finds excellent wood. The top grain is very even and the Brazilian back and sides are striped and "spiced". Get a collector grade parlor from Wes Lambe for a fraction of the cost of other builders. It can stand up tall against anything. It's one strong parlor.

Manufacturer's Description from Wes Lambe

Not only are my instruments crafted with my experiences as a professional instrument builder, and my experience running and owning various repair shops, but my designs also incorporate my experiences as a performing musician, and as player for over 20 years.  My instruments incorporate many of the latest techniques and materials, while still being voiced, honed, and shaped in the handcrafted -time honored tradition - of the master guitar makers of generations past.

I incorporate carbon fiber reinforcement and modern Epoxies  where necessary for reliability and stability. I also use modern CNC technology where absolute digital precision is needed. Fanned-fret ®* fretboards are slotted, brass tailpieces are machined, complex inlays and neck joints are routed, etc. with unmatched precision.  

In other areas where "tone" and "feel"  are the objective, I employ the use of more traditional techniques. Hot hide glue is used for all bracing, acoustic bridges, and neck joints. This all natural glue has been used by makers of the finest musical instruments for centuries, for its resistance to "creep, and superior acoustic properties.  Archtop plates are graduated and voiced using finger planes and scrapers. Fingerboards are leveled with hand planes.  Braces are shaped, comfort contours are carved, and plates voiced using knives, gouges and chisels.  All of my necks are individually carved using rasps, files, scrapers and lots of hand sanding.
