Top: Halfling® carve

This steel string is a beautiful musical weapon, cuts through all the clutter. The cedar top combined with the ultra hard Ipe gives and amazing clear pop to the notes, lets the bass thunder and the high end is crisp and clean. The tone has a rich vibrant textured sound. The sustain just doesn't want to quite. The color is a whisper gray. The texture and grain of the top reaches through the lacquer finish and you can feel its vibrations as well as visually see the source. The neck is a hand rubbed satin finish that is smooth and sleek, not grippy. It was built in 2014 and belongs to a private collector. This guitar has never has left the shop.
