Made in El Cajon California, the Taylor 712ce 12 fret is a beautifully compact and comfortable guitar packed with tone enhancing features. The Grand Concert body size is one of Taylor’s smaller body shapes which is very easy to handle but produces a lot of volume and tone for its size. The Taylor 712ce’s 12th fret neck joint shifts the bridge further down the lower bout of the guitar, enhancing midrange and a warmer played-in type of sound. The new V class bracing pattern designed by master luthier Andy Powers helps to boost the overall volume and sustain on this model.

Eastman PCH1 OM Orchestra Model Steel String Guitar, Natural

The all-new Eastman PCH1 OM model really hits a sweet spot for players looking for upgraded features at an affordable price. One of the main features on this model is the solid Sitka spruce top, paired with a laminate Sapele body.  The top or sound board is one of the main components in tone production on an acoustic guitar. While laminate tops have more durability they are stiff and don’t vibrate well. The solid top vibrates with the energy of the strings and produces tone, and its ability to do this develops over time with playing.   This is a guitar that will grow with you!

Collings OM2H Steel String Guitar

Collings OM2H Steel String Guitar

OM’ stands for “Orchestra Model,” but 80 years after this body shape was first designed it has become the most popular 14-fret model with fingerstyle guitar soloists who choose to play on steel strings. Yet flatpickers also find it appealing, and when the graceful cutaway is added these OMs are often used by lead players who routinely explore all 20 frets much as they would on an electric guitar. The compact body shape makes the Collings OM equally easy to handle onstage or when sitting on the couch, and the relatively shallow body (barely over 4 inches deep) results in balanced tone and an immediate response.”

Collings 00 Mahogany

Collings 00 Mahogany

There’s something about sitting down and playing a beautiful small-bodied guitar that just puts a smile on my face. The way it responds in detail to the softest strum. Now, I love a nice powerful dreadnaught as much as anyone, but I really do feel there are elements of any guitar’s personality that get lost under a heavey right hand attack. The subtle overtones hidden within the note bloom, the way the harmonics shift throughout the decay… you don’t always get to appreciate these things at higher volumes. With that in mind, it’s easy to understand why I’ve fallen so deeply in love with this Collings 001 Mahogany. What looks at first glance like a simple little guitar quickly reveals a huge ammount of sonic personality and character. The more you listen, the more you hear!
