This is an absolutely stunning bespoke ordered Åstrand Å-SJ African Blackwood / Torrified Adirondack Spruce Acoustic Guitar from Swedish luthier Ted Åstrand. We liked it so much we ordered another.
"This is the first ever Åstrand SJ to arrive at TNAG and only the second one built so far in my workshop. It's a new model that has quickly become one of my favorites, I'm looking forward to building plenty more of these in the coming years. It has some of the finest African Blackwood I've had the pleasure to work with paired with a torrified Adirondack top. Apart from the rich golden color from the torrification it gives a very full and matured tone. With the tonal attribute from the Adirondack and my voicing technique it gives a very versatile instrument." Ted Åstrand.
