Starting with a clean design and a team of dedicated guitar makers, Comins Guitar Craft Series instruments are built to meet the demands of discriminating musicians looking for performance and value. Materials are chosen for sonic properties and structural integrity, and specifications are maintained at every step along the way. Designed to be gig-ready and roadworthy, each instrument receives a full and meticulously executed setup before leaving the workshop.
Balanced and comfortably contoured, the GCS-1 semi-hollow, adorned with a laminated flame Maple top and Rosewood fingerboard, produces clear and solid tonalities that adapt incredibly well to Jazz, Rock, Blues, and just about any genre beyond.
This elegant and comfortable 16" wide x 2.75" deep archtop is traditionally appointed with a laminated Spruce top, laminated flame Maple back and sides, and an Ebony fingerboard and bridge. The tonality is beefy and round with just the right amount of lively stringiness to make it perfect for plectrum and fingerstyle Electroacoustic music.
This version of the GCS-1 offers highly adaptable tonalities from a laminated Spruce top coupled with an Ebony fingerboard that thicken and round out the articulation in a way that makes the instrument gravitate slightly more toward Jazz and Jazz/Fusion idioms.
The GCS-16-2 archtop is a great choice for players looking to achieve versatile, amplifier-friendly archtop tonalities. The cushion of air behind each note remains highly evident, while the added bridge pickup and metal bridge saddle help even out and solidify the response across the guitar's entire range. This model excels at high-volume Jazz and R&B styles.
