The Sensational Laskin Mid-Size "TNAG 10" Anniversary Guitar Arrives

This year TNAG turns 10 years old and of course we had to take the opportunity to commission something very special in celebration. After months of contact with Grit Laskin, we decided there was no-one better to ask to build this commemorative instrument for us. This is first new Laskin Guitar to be bought into the UK Showroom and we are completely blown away- all thanks to Grit's olympian talent.
Canadian lutherie extraordinaire, Grit is the first and only musical instrument maker to receive Canada’s most prestigious national craft award, the Saidye Bronfman Award for Excellence. He is also the originator of the built-in 'Armrest' and 'Ribrest' edge bevel, co-originator of the 'Sideport' soundhole and world renowned for his inlay art. It's safe to say that his talent is above and beyond and we are so excited to have had this opportunity to exhibit his supreme skill.

This commemorative guitar is a Laskin 'Mid-Size' Model. This model is almost as big as a dreadnought in its width, upper bout and lower bout, but reduced in depth and features rounded lines.

This guitar features a beautiful set of African Blackwood for the back and sides, complete with a Sapwood centre, paired with a Mastergrade Sitka Spruce top. Of course, we couldn't pass the opportunity to make use of Laskin's acclaimed inlay art, with a very special design featuring on the headstock of this guitar. Here Grit created a masterpiece, incorporating a cotton plant joining into an English Rose. This signifies the merging of The North American Guitar and Cotton Music Centre Nashville, to create what is now 'The North American Guitar Nashville'.

On top of this, this guitar also features the world-renowned and beloved Laskin Bevel, Rib-rest and an innovative ovular soundport. It is an infinitely comfortable instrument to play and sound as good as it looks.

"Grit and I have been discussing this exciting project at length for some time now and it only seemed fitting to team up with his immaculate talent and almost 50 years' experience to commemorate our 10th Anniversary. Combining the heritage of TNAG's UK foundation intertwined with our new partnership with Cotten Music to form TNAG Nashville, Grit envisioned the English Rose and Cotton Bud intertwined to create a true masterpiece. We are just so very proud to announce this stunning instrument to the world so, from us all, Grit, thank you for vision, dedication, and talent to make this project come to life." Ben Montague.
