Description

Shelton-Farretta, a pair of makers, from Portland Oregon are known for making quality instruments. This Double Back employs a second 'internal body' that resonates free of any restriction from the players body. Sound emanates not only from soundhole but from the entire perimeter of the top. This makes for a very strong, articulate and clear guitar that easily fills the room with music. The projection is terrific and even the high registers maintain great clarity and power.

I'm very impressed with the projection and clarity of this guitar. We are constantly asked for guitars that are loud and strong as well as clear, well this is it. The construction is excellent and the design is exciting. Don't miss this one.
 
The concept of a double-back and double-sided guitar is relative new to me and I must admit this guitar has it all. It has power and tone to spare with a unique look and feel. One of the best I've played.
