|Comments||Oskar Graf has been building guitars in a small town in Ontario, north of Kingston, since 1970. In that time, he’s built over 400 instruments, many used by prominent players. This 1984 Oskar Graf Cutaway Steel String demonstrates his skill. Built using a neck joint taken from traditional classical guitar construction with a ‘slipper heel’, the guitar is very resonant and balanced with lots of projection. The compound bend on the cutaway makes for a very accessible upper register. Visit Oskar Graf’s website here!|
