The Jazz 14 Semi-Hollow has arrived!
December 5, 2008
The new models just keep coming! Our latest: the Jazz 14
The name refers to the wider body (14" at the lower bout), making it more familiar feeling to the archtop guitarist.
The body is also very extensively chambered, allowing for dual soundholes and some real weight reduction. The tone coming from this body construction is very clear and articulate, with great note separation and an airy, open high-end.
As on our prior Jazz model, this also features our adjustable-height wooden bridge and tailpiece system, which also contribute warmth and depth to the tonal picture.
But enough words - here's the guitar!
A new breed of Nylon-string...
November 4, 2008
It's been a long time since our last "What's New", so we'll have a few overdue updates in the next week or two.
First up - our new generation of nylon-string guitars is here!
The most exciting new feature is the height-adjustable wooden bridge, which allows the player to easily fine-tune the action without even loosening the strings.
The chambered body and soundhole further push the acoustic vibe.
Finally, these new nylons now feature the 'radiused' curved top that also graces our Swift, Paris, and Centaur instruments.
All in all - the feel and sound of these instruments has never been better!
New dealer - Terra Guitars in CT!

The newest - Non-Cutaway Acoustic!
June 10, 2008
We're very pleased to show off these first pictures of our Grand 16" Non-Cutaway model...
Pictured is a Grand 16" Baritone 12-string, with the new full-size, non-cutaway body.
The already huge sound of these guitars gets a little boost from the extra airspace and internal volume of this shape, and the look is a bit closer to traditional...but not too much!
We're thrilled with the sound, feel, and look of this new shape - more of these will be coming soon, including a very custom Standard 6-string...
Some Changes to the Website...
February 13, 2008
The New Year has brought some subtle but very cool changes to our website...
-First off, our different lines of instruments (Acoustic, Electrics/Electric-Acoustics, and Basses) now have individual homepages, for quicker navigation and easier comparison of the different models.
-Secondly, the instrument pages now feature a 'slideshow', which lets the viewer scroll through many different examples of any given model, showing different colors, configurations, and woods!
We're really excited by these new features - the website is now better than ever, and shows more beautiful guitars! What's not to like?
More updates coming soon - including a very, very special acoustic...here's the first peek:
November 15, 2007
Hot off the presses...
Some of the new breed of Centaurs. Two Flamed Myrtle, and one Quilt Maple burst... One of these can be seen and heard at Bass Club Chicago.
Also, be sure to check out the incredible walnut Centaur we just shipped to The Groove Shoppe!
More coming soon...stay tuned!
