This Ebony-bodied Merlin is loud and sweet. Tuned an octave above standard tuning. This model has become a real favorite for studio players, working musicians, and anyone looking for a real alternative to mandolins without the learning curve or the tight fingerboard spacing..
Sitka Spruce top,Ebony back & sides,Mahogany neck with super-light titanium truss rod.
Ebony bridge & tailpiece, Hipshot lightweight tuners and a 16-1/8” scale length
The classic electric guitar. Dual magnetic pickups and simple-yet-versatile controls let the player easily call up tones ranging from sweet to powerful. The Elan Archtop is lightweight, sleek, and versatile. The wooden tailpiece and height-adjustable wood bridge bring modern and innovative updates to the classic electric guitar.
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.
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.
This Paris 4-string is visually and sonically striking - it combines the vibe of an acoustic-style bass with a full dual-magnetic electric setup, making it an intriguing hybrid of both.
The mahogany body is capped with a bound Sitka Spruce top. With a lined fretless pau ferro fingerboard and bridge, large body chamber and soundhole, it has a strong acoustic look and flavor.
Electronically, this bass is a departure from our typical Paris model, a pair of Citron HB magnetic pickups run through an Aguilar OBP-2 preamp with separate active controls for treble and bass.. This combination is fantastic for the full range of electric fretless tones, from "Jaco"-like focus to a deep, warm bloom.
This bass was a NAMM-show demo instrument from 2013. It is immaculate condition and looks beautiful. New price for a similar instrument would be around $4500+ including the soundhole/chamber option and body binding.
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.
Striking blue satin with a sweet jazz tone. Completed in May of 2007, a one-of-a-kind 25" scale Jazz 6-string.
Carved top, chambered, very rich-sounding.
Trade-in from a collection, never been played out.
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.
