Description

There's a very good reason why players keep an eye out for Franklin guitars built by Nick Kukich. These things have got some serious tone in 'em! This beautiful Franklin Jumbo was built in 2003, and it has all the characteristics of a standout instrument. Great tone, wide dynamic range, and easy playability. It's hard to imagine a situation where this guitar wouldn't shine. Whether you're a fingerstylist or singer/songwriter, this guitar will be a great fit.

Ever since I played Woody Mann's Franklin years ago I've been a fan. Few makers so capture the essence of the pre-war sound and energy in a modern instrument. The modern part is key because this guitar plays great, is adjustable and is rock solid. But the vibe is all vintage. Stefan Grossman fans will enjoy the big bass that this Jumbo Franklin produces. Another great one from Nick Kukich.
 
The size of this guitar gives it the presence of a piano with rich bass string tone and lots of volume. It's a pleasure to play fingerstyle or strumming. The neck is streamlined and smaller than most modern acoustic guitar necks which can be a plus if you have small hands like me.
