Description

This is another incredible example of Ben Wilborn’s not inconsiderable gifts to the world of modern lutherie. His Nautilus model, part of the new Comma Series, features an offset soundhole, twin bevels for creature comfort, a multiscale setup with 25.5” on the bottom and 25” on top—and this custom build has be(e)n upgraded to the max with chocolate-dark Brazilian Rosewood for the body, master grade Adirondack Spruce on top, and a K&K Pure Mini pick with vintage 1/8” output jack. Hands down, this guitar kills.

Wow! This is a revolutionary design that I think is quite special. The offset soundhole helps to make this midsize body sound huge. It’s an awesome instrument for alternate tunings, but even just strumming a G chord in standard is complete and enveloping. Striking in detail and soul-shaking voice. If this one's already sold by the time you're watching this, I highly recommend that you call me today and order one.
 
Damn, Ben does it again. His new Nautilus design is a godsend to any guitarist looking to extract every drop of tone out of a smaller instrument—this Brazilian-and-Adirondack slice of heaven is oh, so, sweet.
