Description

Velvet to our ears. This 2015 Kraut 00 is stunning, a testament to modern lutherie and small bodied guitars with big bodied tone. Figured Birdseye Maple back and sides, Italian Spruce on top, and this one features Ray’s elevated fingerboard, which you’ll see actually goes through the top. In excellent condition, this Kraut has sweet, warm trebles that cut right through the mix, and pairs handsomely with a lively, balanced bass response. It’s an excellent fingerstyle instrument, hands down. Alessi tuners, Ebony bindings, and a Hoffee flight case round out the package. We love Ray’s geometric eye when it comes to his rosettes, and the headstock cap here is no exception, perfectly executed.

This is a rare and special set of Birdseye Maple. The figure is so intense and dramatic. But let’s talk tone, this guitar is rich and full: Ray voiced the Italian Spruce top perfectly to complement this fine set of Maple. I especially appreciate the presence of this guitar, it has a nice immediacy that is compelling for the player.
