Description

We’ve been waiting with bated breath for this one to arrive! Here’s the latest and greatest from our newest Canadian builder, GR Bear of Vancouver, British Columbia. Bear’s larger SJ-C body conveys power and growl, and the unique Gidgee back and sides bring out a distinct woody timbre to the bass register; Lutz Spruce on top gives the trebles a bright, chimey flavor that really cuts through the mix. The fit and finish is flawless from tuner to tail, with a UV-cured Polyester finish for the body and neck, and Royal-Lac shellac top for maximum resonance.
The neck is satin to the touch, and a delight in hand. This one takes to both flatpicks and fingerstyle equally well, and we can’t wait to hear what it sounds like after it’s got some hours under its belt! Considering how much tone we’re getting right out of the gate today. Comes wrapped in a Calton flight case for safe keeping on those rare moments you aren't playing it.

I'm super excited to be representing GR Bear. He builds with sustainable woods from his homeland and the voice of his instruments is ear-candy for the soul.
