Details

With over four decades of guitar building experience, Nick Kukich is a renowned, master luthier who has fine-tuned his build process to create some of the most high-quality boutique instruments on the market. This pre-owned Franklin Jumbo is a prime example of what one can expect when purchasing a Franklin guitar. The gorgeous European Spruce top pairs seamlessly with the Koa back and sides, and creates a playing experience that is extremely balanced from bass to treble, with an abundance of projection and headroom. These qualities are largely due to Nick’s custom bracing modifications and body dimensions. The result is a guitar that is clear and articulate, with a clean and crisp, woody tone, all while lacking the “mushy” characteristics that Jumbo guitars have a reputation for. These features, paired with its hard V Mahogany neck, classic Herringbone purfling, Brazilian Rosewood bridge, and ivoroid binding on the body and fretboard make this Franklin Jumbo ideal for those looking for a high-quality, meticulously crafted guitar that is perfect for everything from strumming to fingerpicking.

“I believe that a production line is a type of machine which produces ‘units’; while a guitar built by a single craftsman remains a unique piece of art. Each Franklin Guitar is a personal expression; hence, my signature is on every label.” – Nick Kukich 

Being pre-owned, there are a few blemishes throughout the guitar. None of these alter the tone or playability of this spectacular instrument. For an in-hand description, feel free to contact us.
