Description

Dennis Scannell and his True North guitars may not be familiar to you but that's only because for years players have been snatching up every one he makes. So quietly, perhaps too quietly, Dennis has been building some amazing instruments that only a lucky few have ever experienced. Well we are here to tell you to make sure you listen to this True North Model 2 Grand Concert Wedge Body played by Al Petteway. This Brazilian/Lucky Strike Redwood guitar is utterly sublime. Rich, full and deeply resonant with the kind of voice fingerstyle players dream of. The strong and dense treble notes swell as they blossom into full voice and the bass is resounding and proud. Even a light touch is rewarded with big tone and it has surprising headroom as well. The Wedge Body and contoured cutaway make it extremely easy to hold and play. If you are a fan of Ryan, Wingert or Olson, you'll love True North as well.

Simply awesome! I first heard of Dennis Scannell and his True North guitars from Martin Simpson years ago and every one I've played has left me speechless. This guitar is as complete and wonderful as they come!
 
One of the better guitars to come through recently, this one is balanced and easy to play with everything you'd want in a fingerstyle guitar. It has nice clarity in the mids without getting "honky" and very even response across all registers. Nearly perfect.
