Chris Lounsbury has been building guitars in Hamilton, Ontario for some time, after attending Sergei DeJonge's course in Chelsea, Quebec.

Lounsbury guitars are very well made and sound quite good. This is a Lounsbury Concert model built with a Sitka spruce top, Ziricote back, sides and headplate. The neck is mahogany with an ebony fingerboard, binding and rosette. There is also a sound port on the upper bass bout, which gives the player a very real sense of what the audience hears.

This Concert model has a 25.4 inch scale length and 1.75 inch nut width. The tuners are Gotoh 510 with burnished gold finish and ebony buttons. The headstock features a Great Lakes inlay in shell.

As is the case with guitars from many current builders, this guitar has a hand-applied French Polish finish. This finish technique protects the wood, though not to the degree that modern plastic finishes do, yet allow the wood to vibrate freely - as many modern plastic finishes do not.

This is a very nice guitar to play. It's well made and comfortable, and the side port really enhances the player's experience.

A TKL hardshell case is included.
