Description

Stefan Sobell’s Model 1 design is a fantastic example of a desert island guitar: it handles a wide range of musics, can be played hard or soft, and projects powerfully without being a full tilt jumbo guitar. This particular example from 2001 is proof of all that and more, here decked out with a three-piece Cocobolo back and German Spruce top, crows’ feet appointments, and a slinky low setup that’s effortless under your fingers. A Highlander IP-1 pickup will take you right up to the stage, and a Calton flight case will keep this Sobell safe and sound on those rare moments you aren’t playing it. Built in 2001, this Model 1 has had some good playing time under its belt and is oh. so. wide open.

This one came to us from a longtime friend of the shop who has great taste in guitars, and he's a wonderful player to boot. If you have ever longed for a Sobell instrument this is one to take a hard look at.
 
Lively and responsive to a T. Stefan’s Model 1 is a true workhorse, and this one is equally at home with picks as with fingertips.
 
This is one of the best sounding Sobell guitars I've played. The tone is evenly balanced and the guitar has plenty of bass response.
