Here we have a well-cared for Goodall Standard in Mahogany and Sitka Spruce. Born in 2000, this great guitar is really opening up nicely. It has the powerful bass and excellent balance that Goodalls are known for, and the neck shape is very comfortable and easy to play. James has said that he feels the Standard represents the crowning achievement of his lutherie career, and we're inclined to agree.

"When I think of dreadnoughts, I think of late night bluegrass jams at the feed n' seed, or Tony Rice laying it down in Manzanita, but James Goodall has taken the iconic shape and elevated it tonally to more rarified air with the Standard model. It's curves look familiar, but the voice is just as well suited to fingerstyle as flatpicking -- I love the bass response of this guitar, and the balance is superb all the way up the neck and across the strings." - Paul Heumiller
"I really liked this guitar because it felt like the possibilities were wide open as to which style of playing it would be best for. I played a fingerstyle sample, but after strumming it a bit, I think it would work well for strumming as well. The neck profile is perfect for my hand as are all the Goodall guitars. " - Al Petteway
