Description

This guitar is largely based on the guitar designs of Domingo Esteso, which is most evident in the plantilla, internal structure and fan bracing. The sound is at once firm and refined, clean and stable, at times reminiscent of a Hauser style instrument, yet also open and charming, with an eager willingness to be pushed hard. Despite its ability to achieve great volume, balance between bass and treble remains excellent, with neither ever overpowering the other. Playability is also top-notch, with its smooth neck shape and easy action allowing for long playing sessions without exhausting the hands. This is our first cedar instrument from Matt and it has added richness and overtone content to his spruce model. We're excited to be representing this fine maker here at GSI, and find this particular guitar to be a remarkably mature, tastefully restrained example of modern American luthiery.

Although a used guitar, it is in excellent condition with no cracks or damage, and Matt Chaffin just completed some finish touch-up to the French polish to remove wear from the previous owner.
