We're really looking forward to receiving this Kodiak Resonator from C.F Holcomb guitars, and this time in all Claro Walnut.
Claro Walnut is a sensational mid-density tonewood. Aesthetically, it has a striking, figured grain and mid to dark-chocolate brown tone, often with a purple/reddish hue. It produces a crisp, strong tone, with great power. On the tonewood spectrum, its sonically drier than Mahogany, whilst bringing more warmth than Maple, for example.
When it comes to construction of the Kodiak Model, there are similarities to the build of an acoustic guitar. Often resonators are built with flat, levelled sides- producing a speaker cabinet effect, however, the top and back of the Kodiak are radiused and the sides are tapered, encouraging similar projection and sonic movements to that of an acoustic guitar. Pair this with an all Claro Walnut body and we are expecting a brilliant, warm, punchy resonator.
