Gadjo "Modéle Américain" By Don Waite Guitars Hand-Built 2016Don Waite Guitars
For sale today we have a beautiful hand-built acoustic by Berkshire Hills, Western MA luthier Don Waite. This 2016 "Modéle Américain" features a Gypsy jazz guitar aesthetic sporting a carefully-crafted slotted headstock, ovular soundhole, and single cutaway body for full range of play up the neck. Tonally this instrument is incredibly rich and articulate with supple, woody low-mid response and crisp highs. Very even, loud projection on the whole that makes it a terrific acoustic suited for almost any playing style. Carefully-selected tone woods and materials: spruce top, rosewood back and sides, ebony fretboard and bridge, bone nut and saddle; equipped with vintage-style Schaller tuners. Easily-accessible truss rod for precision setups. A radiant gloss finish really makes this Gadjo jump off the wall. It is normally impossible to find a hand-built instrument this refined for such an accessible price - Don Waite really has a vision with his instruments. Be the lucky owner of this one-of-a-kind gem of an acoustic - number 105!
