Description

Franklin Guitars, built by Nick Kukich, are very highly regarded. They only come up for resale occasionally and this one is a gem. Here we have a Jumbo from 2007 in premium Brazilian Rosewood and Old Master Grade German Spruce built from the ground up for tone. The Brazilian is perfectly well-quartered again for ultimate tone. Nick told us the German Spruce is very old and comes from the stash of famed maker Jeffery Elliott. The Jumbo body is very alive and makes this a very fun guitar to play. You get a lot of output with very little effort, and you can also conjure up some serious volume when you wish. The Venetian cutaway combined with a square heel make playing this guitar very comfortable in the higher registers.

I've had the chance to play many Franklin Guitars over the years so I can tell you this one is special. The woods are out of this world. Perfect grain, color and sound. The recently added sunburst by Nick Kukich really sets this guitar apart. This Franklin Jumbo is very well crafted, and I love the square heel that's flush with the cutaway. I really like the truss rod access from the tip of the headstock, very cool. Franklin fans, don't miss this one.
 
I love the sound of this guitar. It's got great bass response without being muddy and it's easy to play
