13218- Shane’s BYO acoustic

Another RGa-35 acoustic, this time built by my favourite guitarist Shane Gilbert.

We built this guitar by listening carefully to the sounds of the wood as we braced the Englemann spruce top and carved the bracing and with Shane’s attention to detail and patience, he has built a truly exceptional sounding guitar that has wonderful tone, volume and playability that is right up there as one of the best sounding and playing instruments that has come out of my workshop over the last nearly thirty years. Big Statement I know…

Other details about this guitar are that it is fitted with the usual Grover 18:1 ratio machine heads and I’ve installed a K&K Pure pickup system.

The back and sides are Fijian mahogany with a bound Macassar ebony fretboard and Australian lacewood rosette.
