Model 2000
Model 2000 is my latest concept in fine guitars for the fingerstylist. It incorporates a ribbed, vaulted back that not only looks stunning, but affects the tone in several positive ways. The volume is increased by focusing the sound towards the soundhole. This in turn lends an amazing clarity of tone, which is ideal for recording and amplification. Thirdly, the projection and carrying power of this instrument are remarkably enhanced by the unique design of the back.

The highly arched design of the back makes the guitar very comfortable to hold because the sides are narrowest at the lower bout—right where the player’s arm rests. The guitar feels like a thin body instrument, but sacrifices nothing in interior volume. The unique structure of the back provides surprising strength without any bracing being necessary.
