Description

There’s simply no one out there quite like Bill Tippin. His instruments astound both the eyes and the ears, and they play as easily as breathing. It is, hands down, an honor to offer his guitars to the world. We recently landed a gently used 2011 Crescendo with exceptional Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and Swiss Moonspruce top that’s quickly stealing our hearts. Bill’s voiced this one with an ear for crystalline note definition and separation between the registers; the sort of voice that brings everything out in brilliant clarity. So you’ll want to be on your best behavior. Flamed Koa bindings throughout the build dovetail into a Ryan-style arm bevel that’s a joy to feel. Bill’s signature soundport is carved out of the upper bout on the bass side, and you’ll find Fire Opal and Blue Paua inlaid into the fretboard, set off by additional Koa and Waverly tuners with Black Pearl knobs.
There’s so much energy just waiting to be tapped into, this Crescendo can take whatever you throw it. When played softly, the dynamic range doesn’t suffer a jot, and the clean presence of the middle register keeps the tone even and enveloping. How does Bill manage to build such incredible guitars, time after time? We don’t know, but we’re glad he does. This 2011 Tippin Crescendo is not one to miss.

This is simply one of the best Tippin guitars I’ve ever played. It feels slightly lighter than normal in my arms, and the top is super energetic. It’s loud and rich in the way that I just want to curl up with. Amazing in every way.
