Description

We're always happy to get our hands on a guitar from Tom Doerr's shop, so when this Legacy Select from 2010 came up we made sure it found its way onto our wall. This is an excellent example of Doerr's Legacy model--his most popular design--with a gorgeous chocolate set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides, and a Swiss Spruce top which exudes clarity and powerful projection. One crack of the low E string, however, and you'll find the bass is thunderous, with a well-defined edge that works well for fingerstyle arrangements. For that matter, all the registers are well-defined and present, making this one of the most well-balanced instruments we have in the shop right now!
If the devil's in the details, then this is one devilishly beautiful guitar: micro-beveled bindings for player comfort, Florentine Cutaway, L.R. Baggs Anthem pickup, subtle routed channel on the back of the headstock which matches the seams of the neck laminations. We're grateful to Tom for maintaining a perfectionist's attention to detail across every aspect of this guitar's construction, from the finish to the tone.

Tom Doerr has become very well known for building guitars with characteristic beauty, inside and out. This guitar has beautiful overtones and bloom. The sound fills the room in a luxurious way.
 
This is a very nice guitar for fingerpicking. The guitar has been set up perfectly for a professional guitarist and the tone is nice and balanced with an underlying sweetness that is very nice.
