Here's an incredible Traugott Model R forged from very tightly flamed Koa, the kind that is very rare indeed. And who better to perform with this instrument than famed Celtic fingerstylist William Coulter? Coulter owned this guitar for several years before it ended up in our hands. The Koa has a deep, rich color and perfectly symmetrical figure on the back. The top is one of the silkiest pieces of German Spruce we've seen. It's full of medullary rays or silking, which is an attribute only the very best tops possess. Jeff adorned this beauty with a top border and rosette of select blue Paua Abalone and comes complete with a Calton Deluxe Flight Case. The tone is spellbinding, it absorbs the player and inspires at every fret. It's very clear why Jeff Traugott is considered one of the very best makers in the world.

1994 Traugott R -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"I have played many of Jeffs guitars, owned them as well, exceptional is the only word that comes to mind when talking about a Traugott. This Model R has a great bark to it if you dig in but the sweet tunes is really where this baby shines, it's beacause of instruments like this that Traugotts are so well regarded." - Paul Heumiller

"This is a unique Traugott guitar. The Koa on the back and sides is some of the nicest you'll see and the fancier trim is rare on these instruments. The intonation of this guitar is probably the best I've ever seen. I played chords fingered on some strings and open on others, past the 12 fret and it was perfectly in tune. Really amazing." - Al Petteway
