Background

With an eleven year waiting list and significant demand in the U.S., Europe and Japan, Eric Sahlin is one of the great American luthiers who has achieved world-class status. Sahlin's guitars have been used by Scott Tennant, Andrew York, Ottmar Liebert (flamenco), Carsten Pedersen and others.

Description

This instrument is made from aged and gorgeous CSA rosewood for the back and sides and European spruce for the soundboard. The sound is bright and punchy with great depth and balance across all registers. Overall, tone is both full-bodied and extremely clear. Workmanship is phenomenal - to truly appreciate the perfection of the craftsmanship, it almost requires viewing with a microscope. The elegant and minimalistic use of mother-of-pearl in the headstock, rosette and tie-block give the guitar a unique and beautiful aesthetic. Sahlin also adds a slight "twist" to the neck profile, which eases the stress on the left hand wrist in the lower positions, allowing the player to keep a straighter, less "bent" wrist position even when barring. One of the most ergonomically well thought-out designs we've seen.
