Description

We hardly had a chance to play this guitar in the shop before someone swooped in and took it home with them. This is Ben Wilborn's 2015 Orchestra model, his workhorse contender for any and all environments. The articulation is astounding, with a low-end that sings even and clear. The Cocobolo back and sides and Sitka Spruce top create a crisp upper register which doesn't overpower the instrument's tone, and the setup is glossy smooth and effortless to play. Wilborn's addition of a Cocobolo pickguard and headplate complements the Curly Maple bindings very well, and showcases his excellent eye for detail: the fit and finish is flawless! This guitar comes with the original hardshell Superior case.

I'm excited each time we get one of Ben's guitars in the shop, and this one certainly didn't dissapoint. My only regret is not playing it more before it sold. I was blown away by the projection of this Orchestra, and can't wait to hear what it sounds like in a few years, once it's had the chance to open up!
 
I've been impressed with the Wilborn guitars I've played recently and this one is especially nice. The tone is even and it has plenty of headroom for either fingerstyle or flatpicking.
