Benoît Lavoie has been in the lutherie game for a while now, specializing in a variety of stringed instruments from guitars and violins to cellos and double basses--all that diverse experience, married to an exciting sense of curve and a scientist's eye, makes for one heck of a luthier. Paul first met Benoît at the Santa Barbara show in 2016, where he was too late to acquire one of his guitars for our shop. But! This time we were able to bring one home from the 2017 Artisan Guitar Show; to say we're excited is an understatement.
 
This fan fret wonder in Ziricote and Adirondack Spruce has bass response enough to color a baritone guitar green with envy. "Seismic," "volcanic," "elemental," "bone-rattling" all come to mind when you first pluck that low E string (with a fanned scale length of 26 7/8" for optimal response). Naturally, this makes for a superb dropped tuning guitar; the sky's the limit. DADGAD? No trouble. BADGAD? Tasty, articulate depths. CGEbFABb? CGCGAD? Every lowered tuning we could think up sounded delicious on this 2017 Lavoie, and the playability and string response remained crisp and easy. The offset soundhole and large upper bout soundport help project this guitar's girthy voice right to the player, but all that rich volume doesn't stop at the player's ear: this guitar can fill a room at the first note.
