2018 Pellerin Presentation Grand Auditorium, Cocobolo/Sitka
SOLDAdd to Compare
Michel Pellerin’s got incredible tricks up his sleeve, and he pulled out more than a few for this brand new Presentation grade Grand Auditorium. So where to begin? On woods alone this guitar excels. A gorgeous set of Cocobolo make up the back and sides with just a hint of sapwood at the center seam, and a silky set of Sitka Spruce on top. African Blackwood bridge, Cocobolo rosette and tuner buttons, mirror-sheen and responsively thin Polyurethane finish. Intricate Abalone and MOP flowers and vines inlaid into the fretboard, scalloped nut, arm bevel and Ebony bindings—it’s a challenge to do anything more than stare when you pull this guitar out of the case.
Brand new but already a livewire, this Pellerin GA has a very energetic response and clean balance from string to string and note to note. If you like slick playability, the neck carve and setup will be a dream come true. It’s a big box with a 16 inch lower bout, but Michel coaxes a delicious blend of warmth and articulation out of the voice that’s superb for fingerstyle arrangements and flatpicked pieces alike.
What’s one word to wrap up all this goodness? Incredible.
