Description

Looks like a firecracker, explodes like a cannon. This brand new 2016 Bantam from Ben Wilborn is the answer to every guitarists' prayer for a small instrument with a larger-than-life voice. Featuring Ben's taste for jaw-dropping colors, this Bantam has one of the most beautiful sets of Indian Rosewood we've ever seen, and the Brazilian Rosewood fingerboard and bridge exhibit a striking contrast of chocolate depths and vanilla-colored sapwood. Add to that an Adirondack Spruce top, Peruvian Walnut neck, and Koa bindings, and you're looking at the hottest guitar on the block.

The voice of little lion is equally impressive, with a fierce projection and fast response that'll have you playing in double time in no time at all. As if that wasn't enough to propel this guitar into stardom, Wilborn also added a soundport, so you'll always have a personal taste of the flavor of your playing. If this guitar was any finer, you'd have to pay a fee just to play it.

Ben's managed to build a small-bodied guitar without any of the usual drawbacks. Rather than a plunky sound, this Bantam is balanced and articulate. Instead of feeling like a toy, this guitar is comfortable to hold and feels instantly familiar. And loud? Soundport or not, you can hear this little guitar from a mile away.
 
Such a little beauty. For someone who would like a really nice travel guitar or for a smaller person who wants a high quality hand-made guitar, this one is amazing. Because of its size, it has a softer bass response but it more than makes up for it with its treble response.
