Since 1972, James Goodall has been building guitars with one guiding principle: Acoustic Excellence. With his son, Luke, they strive for nothing less than unparalleled tone, design, tone woods and playability. Looking for a refined guitar with lush overtones and uncompromising workmanship? Goodall Guitars is the answer! Yes, Goodall also makes an incredible sounding baritone! It has such power and clear definition, one almost forgets the pitch is lower after playing or listening awhile. This instrument is especially treasured by guitarists who love to play in drop tuning and slack-key styles. The Baritone includes a neck which has 14 frets clear to the body and a 28 inch string scale. With regular medium gauge strings they can be tuned one whole step down to D-G-C-F-A-D and drop tuned from there. Add a capo at the 2nd fret and it's a regular guitar. With slightly heavier custom gauge strings it can be pitched as low as say B, etc. This guitar is a beast--but in a more manageable package than one would expect from a Jumbo Baritone guitar. The neck profile is deceptively slim 1 7/8in and quite comfortable for the left hand, and the true Baritone 28" scale length gives the strings perfect tension for easy fretting. Made from a straight grained AAA Sitka spruce top and lovely Cocobolo Rosewood back and sides, it's an all time classic pairing for an acoustic guitar build, and this beauty projects so wonderfully! Come with a nearly damage proof Caltan custom case to protect this lovely guitar bumps and bruises, or worse. This guitar is in excellent condition without any damage or repair... less a few swirl marks on the clear pickguard and some light buckle rash on the back that can be seen when held at the correct lighting and angle. Other than that she's fully loaded AAA Adi top, Cocobolo Rosewood back and sides, Abalone Rosette, Curly Maple Double Bound, Florentine Cutaway, MOP and Abalone Inlay, Custom Case, etc etc, one heck of a lovely guitar to add to your prized collection!! If interested please send an offer to entertain, thanks!!
