The Studio 15"!
January 9, 2009
As promised in our Newsletter - here it is, the Studio 15"!
This Standard-tuned 12 is a return to the first few guitars built in this design - Joe's personal 12-string, and a couple of others. This shape was then scaled up and down to make the Baritone and Gryphon models.
A 'happy medium' between the power of full "D"-size guitars and the balance and clarity of smaller body styles, the Studio 15" has exceptional presence and definition across the whole range - the octaves sing out sweetly and brilliantly, and the low fundamentals retain the punch and projection that's often missing from small instruments.
As a 12-string (like this one), these guitars strike the perfect balance between the wide, ambient 'wash' of classic 12-strings and a clear, focused response that reacts to quick transients and fingerstyle playing.
Finally, the 24.1" scale makes this guitar easier to play than almost any other 12-string out there, even with "real" strings (not ultra-lights).
Enjoy - this is going to be one of our featured pieces at NAMM next week.
