Description

One look, and you're intrigued. One note, and you're hooked. The newest offering from Allan Beardsell's shop is here to dazzle the eyes and humble the ears. Let's start with the basics. You know, like the double soundports which pour sweet active bass notes right into your ear. Or the oval soundhole and its spiderweb-like rosette, or the arm and back bevels which meld smoothly with the bindings. And let's not forget the unique three-piece Selmer-style cutaway or the multi-scale Ebony multiscale fingerboard with 27" scale length on the low E and 25" on the high E. As if all that wasn't enough, the back and sides are made of a beautiful set of Leopardwood, and the top is lightly figured Lutz Spruce. When these woods (and that exhaustive list of options) combine, the effect is overwhelming: this is a guitar with an electrified, energetic voice that pops, sizzles, and screams. The low-end, in particular, is very crisp and loud, thanks to the multiscale arrangement, and the middle and upper registers have heaps of headroom. Overall, the 3GMS/25/27 exhibits the kind of agility and responsiveness, perfect for fast, smooth playing, that one would expect from a much smaller build.

This is a rapid-fire guitar for fingerstylists or flatpickers. The setup is so glossy smooth, it requires real effort to slow down and appreciate the sweet overtones or the scope of the lower registers. The fast, energetic response here is just astounding, and it's a miracle Allan was able to fit all of these great custom features into one guitar!
 
This guitar has much more body and overall character than I'm used to in this style of guitar. It can be used for many styles of acoustic music.
