Description

The late, great Lance McCollum has left us with an impressive body of work from terz guitars to double necks, harp guitars to wonderful flattops like this Slope D from 2007 in Sapele and Adirondack Spruce. Build weight is a slim 4lbs 4oz, which makes for an easy playing experience, and Lance outfitted this number with a slim neck profile and slotted headstock veneered with more gorgeously figured Sapele, plus gold Gotoh tuners. Scale length is 25 3/4” for added tension, pop, and power—all of which this McCollum has in spades—and a 1 13/16” nut for a little extra lefthand room. Herringbone trim throughout, plus Maple bindings to contrast with the Sapele and Ady.

I miss Lance McCollum as a friend and I'm delighted every time I get to see one of his instruments. This one is crafted from gorgeous woods and has a beautiful, airy, mesmerizing voice that Lance always offered to musicians.
 
Lots of pop in this circumstance! The voice is lively and energetic with a crisp decay thanks to the Sapele-Adirondack combo.
