New Chubbuck Kalliope Panamanian/Swiss
SOLDAdd to Compare
If ever there was a guitar for both fingerstylists and flatpickers, this guitar is it. Kevin Chubbuck’s years at first Santa Cruz guitars and later Bill Tippin’s shop inform his excellent skills, and have given him countless hours to hone his craft. Thus, when we offer you his large-bodied 2015 Kalliope, we do so with great confidence in his guitars. Not only does the Kalliope project like a dreadnought–it also has the agile, articulate tonality of a much smaller guitar. The result is an instrument with a deep, resounding low-end that is perfectly balanced with rich trebles and a dynamic range. The Panamanian Rosewood back and sides have a desirable tight grain and the upper bout boasts a slender soundport which really projects a great portion of this guitar’s complex tone right to the player’s ear. Paired with a Swiss “Moon” Spruce top, the soundbox is light and responsive–the strings respond to the lightest touch, but the sound doesn’t become distorted under a more aggressive attack, either. Each note rings clear as a bell on this guitar. Chubbuck has added a Ryan-style arm bevel for playing comfort and a K&K Pure Mini pickup with vintage jack. Lastly, this guitar will travel with you safely wherever you go, thanks to the custom-molded fiberglass Calton Flight Case.
