New Maestro Guitars Arrive

You may remember earlier this year that we announced the addition of Maestro Guitars to our acoustic roster and, with it, the arrival of our first batch of Maestro guitars.

The buzz around Maestro quickly started to build and all of the guitars in our first batch sold soon after their arrival.m, therefore we are delighted to have just received our next batch from the Singapore-based company.

This time, we have brought in a number of guitars from Maestro’s Original series, all of which feature a variety of wonderful tonewoods as well as Maestro’s own SB or CSB signature modern appointments package.

The Original Series perfectly encapsulates what Maestro is all about – making boutique handmade instruments accessible to all. Handmade in small batches, these guitars are voiced differently by chief luthier Hozen Yong to bring out what would be the signature Maestro sound – responsive, rich in overtones, with pronounced basses and crystal-like thick trebles.

This Travel size guitar boasts a sound port and beveled arm rest, along with Solid African Ovangkol back and sides and a Solid Sitka Spruce top that compliment the Ebony fretboard to culminate in a balanced and responsive instrument.
