Description

And now for something off the menu: a like-new Casimi C2 Signature, the very first Casimi we’ve ever laid hands on. This gorgeous lutherie gem was originally built in 2012, and recently Matthias Roux and Matthew Rice (the faces of Casimi Guitars) reworked it with a wider fretboard and shining new Alpine Moonspruce top over the original African Blackwood back and sides—and if it sounded great before, it’s even more impressive now. This C2 Signature offers a wide, expansive tonal range that incorporates a smooth treble response with soft overtones with mids and basses characterized by an easy clarity and definition. This is an instrument with fingerstyle in mind, and it drinks up altered tunings like water. Arm and rib bevels, deep florentine cutaway, and a 12-fret neck come together for an exercise in ergonomics that leaves other flattops feeling clunky and rough. An upper bout soundport keeps the player dialed in to their music, and the hollowed-out headstock keeps the neck weight down, letting the body of the guitar anchor comfortably against your chest and leg.
The experience of playing this 2012 Casimi C2 Signature is one of easy playability, smooth & balanced responsiveness, and clean, almost haunting, sustain.

Nothing short of magical. This is the first Casimi guitar I have ever played, and because of it we are going to foster a new relationship with these wonderful makers from South Africa. This guitar is not only exciting to look at, but a sheer joy to play as well. It’s effortless and the tone simply wraps around you like a warm blanket. I absolutely adore it and could own this guitar for the rest of my life.
