Fresh from the 2015 Woodstock Invitational Guitar Showcase, we've got John Osthoff's newest creation just itching to be played. Dubbed his Woodstock FS, this model features a Port Orford Cedar top and Higuerilla back and sides to create a voice with an even blend of big, warm projection and clean, balanced tones across the registers. Thanks to Osthoff's lightweight build, the Woodstock FS has superb projection and the sort of sweet sustain that fingerstylists look for: open and passing chords ring very full and crisp, and Drop D lets the Port Orford Cedar's warmth overflow.
John's eye-catching aesthetics help round out the image of this beautiful instrument. Featuring Sapwood bindings across the headstock, Ebony fretboard, and body and Osthoff's handmade Japanese Maple Leaf inlay, you'll want to play this one in a room with a mirror. Be careful with the Canary and Rosewood spiraling rosette, though--it's easy to become hypnotized--or is that the sweet, rich tone?
With deep, comprehensive articulation for fingerstylists and excellent construction for projection, this Woodstock FS from John Osthoff is ready to get down to business.
