Just Arrived: Episode 2

Welcome to the second episode of Just Arrived. Here, Nick talks about a wonderful modified dreadnought in Brazilian Rosewood and Swiss Moon Spruce from Raymond Kraut. 

One of the biggest joys we have at The North American Guitar is unboxing new instruments when they arrive into our showroom. This is an even bigger joy when we know it’s from Raymond Kraut. Kraut prides his builds on their dynamics and optimal responsiveness creating a tone and feeling that provides players with an instinctual and expressive playing experience. He says it best: “Kraut Guitars is dedicated to building the most responsive guitar possible”.

Kraut Modified Dreadnought Acoustic Guitar, Brazilian Rosewood & Swiss Moon Spruce, $24,125

We’re absolutely thrilled to present this latest instrument from Kraut Guitars. The Mod D (modified dreadnought) is the ideal guitar for fingerstylists. With an intense base response and full, clear trebles, this Mod D has an articulate and musical voice that’s balanced yet powerful.
This Mod D is crafted from the highest grade Swiss Moon Spruce for its soundboard and striking straight quartersawn Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides. 
The mosaic style peg head veneer and the unique Kraut rosette make this instrument is one part master-build, one part fine art. Raymond builds some of the most sought-after, responsive modern acoustic guitars available and this Mod D is the perfect example of that.
