Conceptually in the tradition of archtop jazz guitars, the GCS-16-1 imparts the girth of tone that only a guitar body with ample air space can achieve. That said, the 16” x 2.75” body remains very comfortable, has quickness in response, and offers a pleasing amount of acoustic presence. The body size also helps reduce potential for feedback and the built-in full size humbucker creates smooth and well balanced amplified tonalities.  As a jazz guitar the GCS-16-1 does everything you want it to do and fingerstyle players will appreciate the lofty overtones imparted by the laminated Spruce top. Included is a TKL hard-shell case.

GCS-16-1.............. $2399.00
