2012 Doerr Solace Select, African Blackwood/Sitka Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
Now here’s a guitar that does. it. all. We’re big fans of multiscale instruments for all the reasons: better intonation and string tension across a wide range of tunings, easy playability for the left hand, and it looks so darn cool. Tom Doerr does it right, too. This is a Solace Select from 2012 that boasts a 27-25.25” multiscale fretboard! Sky’s the limit for tuning territory. The body is African Blackwood and Sitka Spruce—and Tom confided in us that this was the finest set of Blackwood he’s ever worked with. And we can see why: we’ve never seen ABW with such dramatic birdseye figure!
The tone is just incredible. Powerful, invigorating, room-filling. The bass register is huge, and with the 25.25” top end the trebles and mids strike a sweet balance between warmth and crispness. This Doerr works like magic in such a wide range of settings, we really think this Solact Select is a powerhouse all-around guitar.
