Here we have another great instrument by Jeffrey Elliott, this guitar features gorgeous and aged materials including European spruce for the soundboard and CSA rosewood for the back and sides with dramatic patterning in the grain. The custom Rodgers tuning machines have Jeff's proprietary sideplate design, and the buttons are snakewood. As we've mentioned many times in the past, Jeff's guitars feature distinguishing aesthetic characteristics in the headstock shape, extremities of the custom Rodgers tuners and even in the label artwork, which to our eyes resemble the maple leaf, symbolic of this guitar's birthplace in the Pacific Northwest. Finally, the entire neck, heel and head are made from a single piece of Spanish cedar, with rosewood veneers on either side of the head. The sound of course is lush and full with great clarity in all voices - it has the grandeur of Hauser and the beauty of Torres, yet carries the distinct sound of its builder at the same time. It is no wonder that his clientele include the likes of Julian Bream, Marcelo Kayath, Ralph Towner, Leo Kottke, Jonathan Leathwood, Earl Klugh, and Ekachai Jearakul, just to name a few. Although a second-hand instrument, it is in excellent condition. As with all Elliott guitars that come through our doors, Jeff always extends his personal warranty to the new owner.
