Pick Of The Week: Episode 1

Welcome to our first episode of Pick Of The Week. In this series we will be shining the spotlight on one special guitar from our showroom, each week.
What better way to kick off this new series than to take a look at the unique and gorgeous work of Eric Weigeshoff, aka Skytop Guitars. We currently have a stunning, Skytop Grand Auditorium in Brazilian Rosewood & Bearclaw Sitka Spruce.

Skytop Grand Auditorium in Brazilian Rosewood and Bearclaw Sitka Spruce, $10,000

It's no secret that Skytop guitars somewhat defy the traditional acoustic guitar blueprint, bypassing the 'standard' Soundhole and instead of featuring two large Soundports on the upper side of the guitar. This impacts the instrument by directing the sound straight towards the player's ear, enhancing the player experience. That being said, in no way does the design hinder the projection of the instrument, making it a real joy for all parties.
Additionally, Eric can be trusted to source the best quality of tone woods and provide the highest level of craftsmanship. For this Grand Auditorium the back and sides are constructed from Brazilian Rosewood, the holy grail of tonewood, paired with Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top. We must say, this is Bearclaw Sitka unlike any we've seen before. Not to mention the gorgeous accents such as the Walnut into Ebony bevel, and the Ebano Bindings.
This instrument really is a true joy to play, watch the full demo below.
