Description


If this 2012 Traugott R were a flower, it'd be in full bloom. The voice has clarity and openness in spades; the kind of string-to-string separation to breathe new color into each chord; a response at once swift and easy. This model R demonstrates why Jeff Traugott's guitars are so revered. Jeff's understated aesthetic is a perfect complement to the voice: the interplay of curve and contour, like that of the bass fundamental and treble overtones, is precisely executed and flows organically.


At a glance, the Brazilian-and-German-Spruce Traugott looks so natural as to have always been there, cradled in your hands. In the bass, trebles, and everywhere in between the voice flows from the soundhole as easy as breathing. Some great guitars have a big, flashy personality--this Traugott R achieves as much, if not more, in a refined package that belies an elegantly open voice underneath.

I'm very impressed by the openness, considering it's only a few years old. DADGAD arrangements are a perfect fit; any fingerstyle, really! Jeff uses only the finest Brazilian Rosewood and German Spruce, and tunes both for a clarity and resonance that you just can't find elsewhere. Worth every penny.
 
I’ve always been a fan of Traugott guitars and this one is right up there with the best of them. The tone is even and balanced and the intonation is perfect. I love how elegant these guitar look too. Just beautiful.
