E-SS08 Sapele Dreadnought



 I’m proud to introduce my latest model, the E-SS08 Dreadnought.  This model sports a beautiful solid ribbon sapele back and sides with a solid sitka spruce top.  The ribbon sapele is brought to the front of the guitar in the rosette center inlay and headstock veneers.  The guitar is bound with dark East Indian rosewood binding and c/b/c/b purfling.  An East Indian rosewood bridge and fretboard bring this guitar all together.  Silver Schaller style Gotoh tuners adorn the headstock.

This guitar produces a nice bright sound, balanced across all the strings and finishes with a nice booming lower end.  Hear for yourself how this guitar sounds by enjoying 3 soundclips of this model of guitar below.
