Description

Stefan Sobell is a world renowned guitar builder from North Umberland England. His guitars are widely regarded as some of the most responsive and powerful available. This is in part due to the fact that Stefan used to perform regularly and found he needed instruments that would fill up the space of an un amplified room. What Stefan did to solve this problem was design a radically different guitar, resulting in an instrument with the cutting power of an archtop but with the sweetness of tone you find with the flat top guitar. One of the main design features of the Sobell guitar is the heavy lateral arching of the top and back, this helps provide power, and also has the unique benefit of making the guitar extremely comfortable to hold. This is the New World model in Brazilian Rosewood and Spruce. This is exactly what we expect from a Sobell guitar, it has power and clarity, with a wonderful warmth that really sets it apart from the pack.

I have been playing Sobell guitars for a long time, I first got introduced to them through Martin Simpson. Martin plays Sobells almost exclusively, so I knew if they were that well regarded by him, they were truly excellent instruments.
 
This guitar was designed to make every note ring clear and true which makes it a great recording guitar for fingerstyle or flatpicking. It also has a bit more tension which makes it perfect for lower tunings like C tuning or DADGAD.
