Description

We wish more guitars sounded as good as this brand new Ellie Belle from Reno-based luthier Ben Wilborn. Part of his new lineup of body styles, this 2016 Ellie Belle is lightweight but rich, and adorned with a sharp sense of style. Cuban Mahogany never sounded so good as here for the back and sides, and Ben applied a light burst to the Adirondack Spruce top to match that gorgeous Mahogany set--with figured Koa bindings dividing them.

The voice is crisp and lightning responsive, holds up beautifully under a flatpick in a way that many similar-sized guitars can't compete with. Add to that an excellent string-to-string balance and glass-smooth setup, and you're looking at a dynamic instrument equally at ease for DADGAD fingerstyle arrangements or Bluegrass solos. Wilborn's fit and finish is surgeon-precise: we challenge you to find an imperfect miter joint or seam anywhere across the body. Heck, you can peek under the hood through the soundport to confirm that even the braces are flawlessly manicured! In the market for a guitar that can do it all? The Ellie Belle from Ben Wilborn.

I personally picked this guitar while meeting with Ben at the 2016 Santa Barbara show, and not just because I love Ben's aesthetics, but also because the voice of this guitar was distinct from many of the other steel strings at the show. There's something about the evenness of the tone and the clarity of the middle register that makes the Ellie Belle stand out.
 
A really nice guitar with good balance and nice strong mids and highs. Great for fingerstyle and flatpicking. I really enjoyed playing it.
