What We Think

This Dreadnought acoustic features the highly-coveted combination of Brazilian Rosewood and Adirondack spruce, which results in the kind of tone we pickers dream about. It is rich, balanced and offers plenty of those characteristic "reverby" overtones without sacrificing the strength of the fundamental. Might I also add that the neck is EXTREMELY comfortable to play. Honduran Mahogany is a highly prized wood in its own right, making this instrument a trifecta of tone! The craftsmanship is second to none and exhibits the kind refinement and attention to detail indicative of not just a Luthier, but a player as well.

This is a lightly used guitar with a great story behind it! Call or Email Sound Pure for more info. You've always wanted to own a boutique guitar with Brazilian, and now's your chance! A deal not to be passed up

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.
