Description

Here we have a Kirby model by Harvey Leach, which is a smaller-bodied guitar that features a double bookmatched, figured redwood top, a five-piece laminated neck, and beautiful Pau Ferro back and sides. The neck is shallow and very comfortable, and adornment was kept to a minimum, in exchange for exceptional tonal clarity and depth. This guitar was featured in Leach advertisements.

The tone of this Leach Kirby is rich and sweet, with terrific projection that's rare to find in a small-bodied guitar. I love the styling of this guitar -- the gorgeous four-piece redwood top looks great with the Pau Ferro, and the high-flame koa bindings are the perfect accent.
 
I have played a few of Harvey Leach's guitars but none that were this simply elegant, letting the wood shine. The design is elegant and the tone and playability are spot on.
