  • Comments: This is one tricked out little 00. First of all I have to say this Winter Grain Engelmann is unquestionably the finest top wood I have ever heard. I'm a huge fan of Adirondack, but this may be better for way less $$. This guitar is so loud and punchy you might even mistake it for a Dread in a blindfold test...really. Of course the extra body depth helps with this. John is building these very light as well, so at 4.1 pounds this thing sustains forever. Chords are amazingly clear with a nice midrange crunch. This guitar will do it all...excellent for Bluegrass, Blues, or swing, yet perfectly balanced for Fingerstyle with plenty of volume [and an awesome pickup system] for stage use.
