Description

Kerry Char is a custom builder from Portland, OR. He is known for his wonderful Ukuleles, Harp Guitars and six string Guitars that are the perfect blend of art, craft, and function. Kerry's core fascination with acoustic instruments remains his driving force after 25 years of experience.

This beautiful L-00 style guitar has a vibrant, shimmering, well balanced Brazilian Rosewood tone with smooth playability and lots of tonal personality for blues and fingerstyle. The tobacco burst German Spruce top is particularly gorgeous. The build quality is sublime and it shows Kerry's love for the craft.

Kerry and I met through Luthier James Condino who suggest I work with Kerry, and I am grateful. Kerry Char build an exquisite instrument with style, tradition and most of all tone. I love this 00, it has it's own personality, but doesn't stray far from tradition either. It plays really easy and it is stunning. Tonally, imagine a great old 00, but with much more sustain, resonance and richness. It strikes me as a 30's Gibson L-00 and Martin OM blended together.
 
This is one of my favorite styles of guitars. I really enjoy playing it. I love the workmanship and tone.
