Description

Maybe it’s the two decades’ worth of opening up, or the thin French Polish gloss, perhaps the flattened C profile neck or German Spruce top—whatever it is, this 20th Anniversary LP from Ron Pinkham is an intensely resonant guitar. This beautiful example of French Polished Brazilian Rosewood is excellent for the fingerstylist who plays across the spectrum of altered tunings, but it holds up handsomely to a flatpack as well. Just pluck the open strings and let this baby ring. Now that's sustain!


The trebles have a potent powder coat of overtones that really dress up the upper register and fill in the rest of the voice with some sparkling colors. Ron reverses the body taper with his LP model, making the upper bout deeper than the lower, which helps accentuate the balance and response. Visually, this Pinkham doesn’t slouch. There’s some gasp-inducing figure across the Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, mosaic rosette with Classical flair, and intricately carved headstock. The neck profile is what you’d get if you married a Classical D shape with a typical C profile: the cheeks are shallow but delicately curved (and quite comfortable on the left hand). Pretty, and with a purpose most resonant, the 1996 Pinkham 20th Anniversary LP is the powerhouse all-around excellent guitar you’ve been looking for.

I love the voice, clear and balanced, and the woods and craftsmanship are second to none. This is a special guitar to celebrate Ron's 20th anniversary as a luthier, and it's opened up nicely since then.
 
This was the first guitar I've seen from this company in some time and I was really impressed. The tone was evenly balanced but with a strong bass response and sparkling highs. The neck has a really nice profile and the action is great if, especially if you tune down a lot. I liked it.
