Limited Edition One-Off Guitars. Ready to Ship

Select Series: December 2018 Collection

For this months Select series we have selected some beautiful Koa veneer. Koa is highly regarded the world over for its beauty and also for its structural and tonal properties in instrument building. Here we are using Koa veneer in conjunction with our carbon fibre construction technology to build a guitar that is both beautiful in tone and aesthetics and structurally stable no matter what the climate.

This selection Of Koa has rich Golden colours with darker veins giving it a rich and subtle elegance and an irredesence and shimmer that just can't be captured in pictures.

This series comes with our Cosmo black Gotoh 510 tuners and the LR-Baggs Element pickup system. The back and sides have been finished in a golden Amber over carbon to compliment the colours in the top

X7 (SS-12/18)

The new redesigned X7 offers a beautifully ergonomic body with 24” scale, extended access cutaway and full and balanced tone the defies its compact proportions. Some think smaller guitars are good for traveling but we feel they are just as good when sitting at home on your favourite chair.

X10 (SS-12/18)

One of the most versatile guitars available on the market today, the X10’s slim profile neck and sculpted body its a dream to play but when you plug it in thats when the real magic happens. Featuring our Level 3 pickup system combining 6 individual piezo pickups at the bridge, a custom made Krivo Humbucker at the end of the neck and Midi connectivity.

X30 (SS-12/18)

The X30 is a full bodied Jumbo with a generous 17” lower bout but due to our carbon fibre moulding technology and innovative ergonomic approach the X30 feels incredibly comfortable to play with tone offering thunderous bass response yet still surprisingly balanced across all registers.

X20 (SS-12/18)

The X20 has been our best selling guitar for the past 5 years due to its great ergonomics and versatile tone. The X20 has a very balanced tone across all registers, responsive when fingerpicked and powerful when strummed heavily.

X20 Baritone (SS-12/18)

The X20 Baritone gives you all the great ergonomics and playability of our standard X20 but with its 27” scale and B-B tuning it opens up a whole new tonal spectrum to the guitarist. Great bass response from those lower notes yet still has definition and sparkle in the higher registers. The 27” scale length of the Baritone is also a great scale length for experiment with other tunings.

X20-12 (SS-12/18)

Carbon fibre offers great structural strength and stability which makes it perfect for 12-string guitars. This allows us to make a soundboard that is both light and responsive and its stability and resistance to temperature and humidity. creating a 12-string that stays in tune much better than its all wood counterpart.
