Description

We love getting in guitars from builders we haven't had in the shop before. It is at once a fun and inspiring experience to see what new ideas luthiers are coming up with. Keisuke Nishi, the man behind Keystone guitars, was an apprentice of Mario Beauregard, who trained under insdustry legend Ervin Somogyi himself. The fact that Nishi worked under such a capable master was a major indicator for us that Keisuke has incredible skill and talent for building guitars, so we were already excited to see his work. Then we heard and played it and couldn't be happier!

This Keystone Mod-D in Granadillo and Adirondack (Red) Spruce has the build quality and voice we have come to expect from a builder coming out of the Somogyi school of building. This Mod-D sings as sweet as a bird when fingerpicked and has a full, resonant bass that seems to jump at a player's touch. Pick it lightly and it will resonate with warmth and brilliance. Pick it a little bit harder and it will shine and shimmer. This is a guitar that has a mastery of all things fingerstyle and will surely bring you to new heights as a player.

This is a guitar to hunker down with on a cold winters night - the voice alone will keep you warm! Smooth as butter from bass to treble, it's something worth getting lost in...
 
Obviously a student of Somogyi's building style, Nishi has managed to capture some of that same bass tone and punch. The rib rest on the Mod D style is a very comfortable shape as well.
