While originally designed for our Baritone guitars, the Grand 16" body shape also works beautifully for standard-tuned instruments, yielding a powerful, punchy instrument that feels like home for many "dreadnaught" players.
Players of classic "D-style" instruments will immediately recognize the tonal balance and inherent flavor &mcdash; a full-throated bass register and clean, punchy upper range make the standard-tuned Grand 16" a potent rhythm guitar, as well as an inspiring and unique choice for modern bluegrass, country, and folk music.
The signature Veillette shape gives the Grand 16" a visual appeal and onstage style that outshines the traditional 16" acoustic. Other advantages include our unique neck joint (no more neck resets!) and a heelless neck for fast and unhindered upper-register playing
The structurally superior offset soundhole design adds strength in the critical axis of the guitar, allowing us to brace the tops more lightly, for a more responsive instrument. The offset holes are also naturally feedback resistant, since the air movement does not intersect with the string path.
With classic power, modern styling, and innovative features, the Grand 16" is the ideal full-size guitar for the creative and adventurous acoustic musician.
Available in 6 string, 7-string, and 12-string standard-tuned models.
Also available in cutaway, non-cutaway and symmetrical oval-hole body styles
