Description

There aren't many guitars out there with woods like this one. James Goodall made this Grand Concert Cutaway to completely custom specifications in 1994 while he was living in Hawaii. For starters, the neck profile is slimmer than his other guitars, and is completed with a one-off Jazz, low profile heel, the combination of which makes the neck comfortable to navigate. Fretting notes becomes an almost intimate gesture. The back and sides come from a rare stock of tight, straight-grained Brazilian Rosewood, which is dark and somber in its coloring. Those colors are a nice contrast to the bright, lively tone which comes from the "Big Goose" Sitka Spruce top, which was sustainably harvested from naturally fallen lumber and has a saturated, vibrant color from patination. Moreover, Goodall used Fossilized Walrus for the nut and saddle--an uncommon, yet attractive detail with a clean resonance. All of these specialty woods come together in a tight, responsive package which lends itself to recording or vocal accompaniment, and is wonderful just to look at.

We've got a rare bird here: chock-full of impressive woods and appointments. It's very comfortable to play, and has a clean articulation between the upper and lower registers. I like the Brazilian Rosewood back in particular; those truss rod-straight grain patterns are just so hard to come by anymore. Fingerstylists will make this Goodall sing with nails or fingerpicks, and maybe they'll sing along, too.
 
A great all-around guitar with great ease of playability and an evenly balanced tone response.
