A special guitar that will please the touch of a fingerstyle guitarist! This beautiful and striking guitar has custom selected woods by Music World. The ocean sinker wood is a bit of an upgrade to sinker redwood. The regular sinker in freshwater is either submerged for sometime in a bog or damp environment and it soaks the minerals into the wood and preserves the wood. This piece we have here is from a log that washed up on the beach in southern Oregon. A redwood tree somehow fell into the Ocean and spent time in the ocean water, which has a totally different mineral content. The result is in the wood, blacker and grayer streaks from the oxidation and minerals, creates a stiffer stronger soundboard for the top on this beauty. These are also very limited due to the ocean sinker redwood's availability, this is the LAST new one available.
Walnut compliments this concertina shape with a warm, gentle sound. It has a relatively flat EQ response that will take on the character of the top it's paired with. It absolutely excels when using the LRBAGGS anthem pickup, so if you plan to play this guitar amplified via PA system or acoustic amp, this one is for you. Feedback rejection is stellar! Balances so well and hardly needs any EQ adjustment.
Custom touches - Gotoh Aged Copper Tuning Machines that match with the end pin and strap button. Abalone that pops out and catches the eye on the top spoked rosette against the dark rich Redwood top! The binding on the body and fingerboard has wonderful figure throughout and Caramel browns.
