Description

We've known Paul Woolson for a few years but didn't have the chance to play his guitars until the Miami show early in 2008. We never represent a builder that we haven't played and been thoroughly impressed with and that's just what happened in Miami. Guitarist Larry Pattis, a long time friend to DG, invited us to play Woolson guitars there and we were blown away because Paul Woolson has created a Double Top that is not stark or hollow, as some can be, it's warm and full just with added power. To us that's a great achievement and immediately ordered this guitar; an OM cutaway, Double Top featuring a Cedar and Lutz Spruce 'skins' on the top and gorgeous Cocobolo Rosewood for the body. We also requested Paul's double back design to match the one we loved at Miami. We are delighted with this guitar, it's clear, even, warm and powerful and all that is wrapped in a small, easy to hold, beautiful OM body. This is exciting... About Double Tops From Paul Woolson: "The term 'double top' has been thrown around for a few years now. In its current form, it's relatively new technology. However, classical builders have been used the original form of the double top for decades. The concept of a double-topped guitar is pretty simple: Sandwich a thin layer of aerospace honeycomb material between two very thin tops (or skins as we call them in our shop). This is done in a vacuum process, which creates a very stiff and stable soundboard. The main advantage to this structure is that the top can be built very lightly braced and still remain structurally sound. A lighter top allows more energy from the strings to turn into sound. The final result, in its very simplistic form, is a louder guitar."

After chatting with Paul Woolson for some time we finally got to play one of his Double Top designs at the Miami show and I absolutely loved the tone he is achieving. I've played a lot of Double Top guitars and some seem strident and stark to me with a hollow character. But this guitar is warm and rich with all the body and depth we love in a great guitar, only the projection is nicely enhanced. This is a sneaky loud guitar, it doesn't boom out, but stand across the room and you'll notice it immediately. The voice is very articulate and balanced as Al mentioned and it plays like butter. The short scale and perfect setup are a joy...
 
The double top and the elevated fingerboard/raised saddle combine to give this guitar incredibly even attack and sustain. It's almost like having a limiter/compressor built in. Perfect for recording.
