The GCS-1ES is of the same design as the GCS-1 although the fingerboard and top wood has been replaced with Ebony and Spruce respectively. This configuration tailors the instrument more specifically toward warmer/darker/thicker jazz tones. With exceptional sustain and resistance to feedback, the 1ES is capable of conveying the most nuanced of finger to string interactions.  Included is a TKL hard-shell case.

GCS-1ES.............. $1899.00
