2016 Treehouse Copperdust Steel String Guitar

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

Treehouse guitars are built by Zachary Lefebvre at Hilton Beach on the shores of St. Joseph Island in Lake Huron. The Copperdust is his 20th guitar.

In addition to playing various instruments professionally for many years, Zachary Lefebvre also apprenticed with Sergei de Jonge, and this manifests itself in the guitar in a number of ways – the tonal and build quality and attention to detail are high, and a very good French Polish finish covers the instrument. The use of French Polish has increased in the last few years, partly because of Sergei de Jonge’s efforts; this finish is lighter and tonally less restrictive, it’s easier to repair, and it requires less equipment and exposure to toxic chemicals and solvents.

The Treehouse Copperdust features Master Grade wood sets – a Lutz spruce top, Indian Rosewood for the back, sides and binding, mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard and bridge. The rosette, tail strip, headplate and heel cap carry a copper dust decoration, and the fingerboard side position markers are copper rings. The scale length is 25.4 inches and the nut width 1.74 inches. EVO gold fretwire is used – it’s not really gold, it is copper and contains no nickel. This wire is harder than regular ‘nickel/silver’ wire but not as hard as stainless steel. Gotoh 510 tuners are used, and the metal parts have black chrome finish. The nut and saddle are bone. There is a clear film pickguard applied to the top finish.

This is a very well made instrument, with a clear, crisp well balanced sound.

A deluxe arched top and back hardshell case is included.
