Description

How can one man manage to pull so much tone and understated beauty out of a few board feet of wood, a dash of bone, and a few frets? Every time a Traugott comes through our doors we ask ourselves this question anew. This 2011 Model R is, frankly, like having a six-string piano in your lap. The voice drips with butter-rich tone, but retains crystalline clarity across all the registers. Pluck the low E string, and your ear can pick apart the infinitude of over- (and under-) tones of the bass response--it's like Jeff Traugott built an acoustic microscope instead of a guitar so you can hear an otherwise impossible degree of depth, color, and nuance.

The setup on the slim neck is gossamer, svelte as silk, and faster than you'd think. This Traugott R practically plays itself. Of course this guitar also features some of the finest Brazilian Rosewood and German Spruce available to any luthier in the world; we don't know where Jeff managed to find all this incredible tonewood, but boy are we happy he did! You can ring the bells that are these trebles for days and not get tired. Regardless of tuning, style, picks or fingers, this Traugott performs like an extension of your arm--if your arm was so shapely, agile, and resonant.

A work of art that's easy on the eyes and seductively attractive to the ears. The breathy, shimmering quality of the trebles is paired handsomely with an even-tempered middle register and velvet-rich bass. Jeff Traugott is the man!
 
I've played this guitar before, and I have to say it is the ultimate acoustic guitar. Period. It has a perfectly balanced frequency response and every note is clear as a bell but with lots of character as well. The intonation is perfect and the playability is the ultimate for me. Jeff Traugott has really outdone himself with this one and that's saying a lot. The only other guitar I've played that compares is one like it that was owned by Paul Heumiller, the owner of Dream Guitars. This won't be here long, so go for it.
