This guitar sounds even better than it looks!


Of all the small body guitars I've ever played, this bad boy sounds like a giant! It features an absolutely gorgeous koa top, back and sides and sapele neck that have an incredible wood grain and aesthetic that will make jaws drop. The all Hawiian koa body also allows this guitar to bring forth greater tones the more it is played. The midrange becomes more pronounced and sweet harmonic tones begin to emerge of the course of months of playing. This guitar will only get better with time.
