Description

Woah. This is a monster of a guitar; Stefan nailed it with this Model 1 from 1998. Brazilian Rosewood and German Spruce with a 16 3/8” lower bout and domed back/top! Very energetic, with a quick and lively response. This Sobell is a fingerstyle force to be reckoned with, a natural choice for DADGAD or C9—but Standard holds its own just fine as well. This one has seen some action since its 1998 birthdate, and it’s got a supremely opened up voice to prove it. Our repair staff went over it tuner to tail and we’re happy to give it a clean bill of health. Ready for more!

This Stefan Sobell guitar with over 20 years to mature is a force to be reckoned with. This one is loud and strong and a bit fuller than most, and I have played more than anyone I think, just a beautiful example of Stefan‘s work one to be treasured for years to come.
