World Exclusive - Incoming Casimi C4 Signature Tree
South African luthier duo Casimi Guitars recently announced the addition of a brand new model to their line of incredible handbuilt acoustic guitars.
The new C4 is a full jumbo guitar featuring a 17" lower bout width and 26" scale length. We have been able to secure the world exclusive first C4, and have spec'd this guitar to be built with the world's rarest tonewood, 'The Tree' Mahogany.
We recently caught up with Matthew Rice of Casimi Guitars to find out more about the C4, why he and Matthias Roux have decided to build it and the significance of 'The Tree' Mahogany.
"Since our first C2 was born, we’ve loved the tone, range and balance of this guitar. Through years of painstaking testing and experimentation, we perfected a recipe that gave us almost everything we had hoped for in an acoustic steal stringed guitar. It seems to give the player whatever is asked for without complaint and is always a pleasure to play."
"Now that we offer the C1, C2 and C3, each presents the player with a specific range of possibilities and colours. We are building the C4 to complete this spectrum and offer the player a chance to reach even deeper into the expanded tonal possibilities it affords." Matthew Rice - Casimi Guitars.
