2017 Tippin Forte, Brazilian Rosewood/Adirondack Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
Bill Tippin repeatedly ranks in our top ten. Why? Consistency. Consistency in build quality, and consistency in tone: his guitars are fantastically balanced across the registers. This 2017 Forte is such a powerhouse! The Forte model is a slightly enlarged Crescendo, here upgraded with Brazilian Rosewood and Adirondack Spruce with Koa bindings and a soundport plus arm bevel. The Adi top really opens up after you play for a few minutes, lending a lively and organic quality to the player experience; you’ll remark that this particular guitar is quite wide awake. As mentioned, the balance is splendid across the range, and Bill’s managed to inject the same amount of power and presence into each note, making this an exquisite fingerstyle instrument. Plus it comes wrapped up safe and sound in a Calton case on those rare occasions when you aren’t playing it.
