Description

Here we have a elegantly simple Macassar Ebony guitar from master luthier Gary Zimnicki who has hand crafted well over 200 instruments. This 14 fret, non-cutaway is topped with Adirondack Spruce and trimmed with handsome Bloodwood Bindings on the entire guitar. It is finished off with a custom Bloodwood Rosette. The Ebony has gorgeous figure and adds real clarity and power to the voice. This guitar is excellent for styles that benefit from headroom such as blues but also has real finesse for Celtic, Tradititional and modern styles. In short, this is a great all-arounder and a real looker...

The trebles on this guitar really speak to me, the leap off the soundboard with pride. I find myself really enjoying the blues and rags on this box but it's equally adept at the sweet stuff. The feel is solid and well-crafted, Gary's made more guitars than most and he really knows his stuff. The Maple neck feels great and I really dig the Bloodwood bindings and tapered rosette. It's cool looking without being over the top. A great one...
 
I found this guitar particularly nice for flatpicking, but it has a nice even tone for fingerstyle as well.
