Made for the 2013 Healdsburg Guitar Festival, this all Mango wood guitar is the latest brainchild and showpiece of luthier Jeffrey Yong. Internationally renowned for his innovative design features, Jeffrey has really pulled out all of the stops on this one. To begin, he chose beautifully figured mango for the back, sides and even the top, and the overall result is a unique, yet uniform aesthetic. The natural heritage of this instrument is further showcased by Yong's inlaying of tree branch figures into the fingerboard, headstock, and back. However, the mango wood, it turns out, is more than just for show: this guitar possesses a sweet, balanced tone, with bass that smoothly blends and folds into itself as the trebles ring out clearly and distinctly. Additional features like the half-slotted headstock, scoop cutaway, smooth arm bevel, and soundport make this one as original as they come.

"This is a guitar that stands out no matter where it is in a room. You have Jeffry's signature style and the Mango wood top to thank for that. And though its visual allure is what catches your attention, what keeps you coming back is its voice. It's smooth, strong, and mellow, and sounds especially good in lower, alternate tunings. " - Paul Heumiller
"Unique design and amazing wood choices. The guitar is a work of art." - Al Petteway
