The Kestrel occupies unique territory in the archtop world – offering the rich, unique sound of a traditional electric archtop, while providing a lively acoustic response not normally associated with such classic instruments. Featuring an incredibly lightweight, ergonomic design with highly sculpted bevels and angled sides for ultimate comfort and playability, the Kestrel defines elegance. Detailed craftsmanship is evident in the classic “f” holes, handmade slotted headstock, and the hand-carved carbon fiber tailpiece which floats virtually unseen above the surface. Take flight with the Kestrel.
