With just two models on offer and a very select number of build slots per year, Canadian luthier Dion James' guitars are few and far between. We couldn't be more thrilled to have this No. 4 model, featuring cocobolo and Italian spruce! With a 14-fret neck join and dimensions and curves similar to that of an OM, the No. 4 is a versatile and balanced guitar. Dion's instruments are very modern in both sound and look, with a minimalist aesthetic that focuses the attention on the inherent beauty of the woods. Light and heavy attacks are equally rewarded by this responsive guitar. Low to high, each note sings out with clarity, and then resonates with a clean sustain. Additional player-focused features to note on this guitar include the side soundport, cutaway, a matte finish neck, and EVO gold fret wire.
