    #870 Journeyman Nylon - AAA flame top, gorgeous!

A beautiful example of our most current Journeyman Nylon design. With the glued on "tie-block" bridge and flat top, this guitar blends traditional design elements with modern features and playability.

Scale length is 25.5" The neck has a 20" radius fingerboard and 1 7/8" nut, which make it friendly and comfortable for the steel-string or electric guitarist, while still allowing room for expressive vibrato techniques and precise left-hand fingering.

The body is heavily chambered mahogany, and the end result is an exceptionally lightweight and lively guitar with an almost 'acoustic' feel - final weight is 5.2 lbs, comparable to many acoustic instruments!

The black-bound AAA flame top is striking under the tobacco sunburst finish, and stands out onstage with subtle class and sophistication.

Volume and Tone controls give this guitar a wide variety of plugged-in tones, and the full-range piezo system is extremely responsive to the colors and shadings of the player's touch and technique - just like a fine classical instrument.

Here's a quick clip to demonstrate this guitar:

A natural choice for stage playing, as well as jazz and bossa nova, this guitar delivers an authentic nylon-string sound and experience in a slim, rugged, and feedback-resistant package.

Available now for $3800, including gig bag.

    #828 Flyer 13

This is a beautiful example of our original 13" Flyer design.

Compact and comfy, this model has an endearing and unique tonality - perky, quick, and responsive, with echoes of resonators and Macaferris. The throaty, vocal-like midrange response and crisp trebles are excellent for complex fingerstyle or quick flatpicking, with excellent string separation and note definition. A full 25" scale and 22 fret neck plays just like a full size guitar.

This Flyer is in pristine condition, in a beautiful "Vintage Natural" tint that warms up the natural blonde colors of the maple box and spruce top. The warm golden-brown Pau Ferro fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece perfectly accent the vibe.

Here's Mark Patton bluesing it up....

$3100, in practically like-new condition, including TKL hardshell case.

    #762 Journeyman Baritone 12 string. Amazing!

Mahogany body and neck, quilted maple top, magnetic and piezo pickups. 26.1" scale length. The Journeyman series retains the feel, vibe and sound of an acoustic with a flat top, D-Tar piezo pickup, and Duncan magnetic. It has an acoustic-style pinless wooden bridge. Designed to be the ultimate stage and recording baritone, these instruments offer an extremely realistic acoustic tone, with added sustain and punch from the solid body. Without any of the feedback, fragility, and size of a traditional hollow body guitar, the Journeyman Baritone electric is the ideal choice for any amplified acoustic application. Our proprietary neck tilt mechanism unites the best aspects of acoustic and electric bridges, offering the tone of a fixed wooden bridge with the adjustability and serviceability of a metal system.

    #956 Flyer 14

Here's a lovely example of our Flyer 14" 6-string, in a very striking burst finish. This guitar has our favorite combination of mahogany back & sides, Sitka Spruce top, and Pau Ferro fingerboard, bridge, and tailpiece.

The 25" scale and 14" body offer the perfect blend of full-size guitar feel and tone, along with stage-and-travel-friendly compactness.

With firm but controlled low end, sweet trebles, and and impressively vocal-like midrange flavor, the Flyer 14" is ideal for fingerstyle, jazz and blues, and stage situations where a balanced and controllable sound is desirable.

This guitar is brand-new and ready for a home! New retail price is $4560 on this model. This guitar is available direct for $3800, with no lead time!
