Description

This is only our second Stotzel guitar in the shop, but we wish it was the third or fourth! Playing one of Wilm's guitars is like having your own personal muse at hand at all times--if the richness of the voice can't inspire you, the low-profile neck and silk-smooth setup will definitely tip you over the edge into new arrangements and compositions! We've got Palo Escrito Rosewood back and sides, an interesting choice which gives Stotzel's Grand Auditorium "Courage" the pop and responsiveness of a Maple guitar, with an extra dose of tonal dynamism. Add to that a cream colored plate of the ever-adored Sitka Spruce, and you've got an instrument capable of explosive projection and soothing sustain in your hands.

Looking for a guitar that's equal parts fingerstyle dream and flatpicking dynamo? Look no further: the excellent balance across the registers makes this an excellent tool to explore your fingertips' wildest imaginations, and the snappy, articulate low-end really opens up under a flatpick with moderate to aggressive attack. When you're not playing Courage (read: if you're not playing Courage), there's plenty of well-appointed eye candy to satisfy the sweet tooth of your guitar collector's aesthetic, from the thin, emerald green purflings and asymmetrically shaped heel to the gold Gotoh 510 tuners with Ebony knobs. Bound up in a Hiscox Pro II hardshell case, there's no chance for harm to come to this courageous beauty from Germany, so you better be prepared to carry this guitar wherever you go, so you won't have to go too long without playing it.

Wilm's builds are new, exciting, and most importantly: expressive. Plays great in standard, but once I slipped Courage into Drop D, the low-end started to stretch its legs. Onto DADGAD, and the entire guitar got in on the act and became a beast of another order.
 
An incredible-sounding guitar with big, powerful bass response and crystalline trebles. I'm truly a fan after playing a few of these guitars.
