It's as though nature herself assembled this guitar; every angle so flawlessly joined, every graceful contour, each piece of Ebony, Blackwood, or Spruce flowing seamlessly into one another. Jason Kostal's approach to guitar building leaves no room for superfluous detail: each component is honed to its absolute essence, rendering the instrument elegant and expressive. This 2012 Mod D in African Blackwood and European Spruce is a fingerstylist's version of heaven.
The voice is immense and enveloping, but finely balanced between expansive basses and overtone-rich trebles, and the setup is glass smooth. Handling lowered tunings like the maestro it is, this Mod D offers a pianistic separation of notes and voluminous sustain, leaving your arrangements to hang in the air for long seconds after you've struck a chord. Excellently preserved, this Kostal is in splendid condition, and comes with an Ameritage case to match its elegant aesthetic. For the fingerstylist who craves an instrument capable of profound depths and haunting trebles, this 2012 Kostal will more than satisfy your need.

"You don't often come across such flawlessly assembled guitars as this one, but that's exactly what I've come to expect of Jason Kostal's work. This Mod D has an ink-black set of African Blackwood that gives the guitar an immense low end, and the red-tinged "Stained Glass" rosette is the perfect detail to set off the clarity of the Euro Spruce top." - Paul Heumiller
"In the Somogyi style, this guitar has that huge bass response that you would expect. The tone is warm and round and the workmanship is amazing.
