Details

A former luthier at Froggy Bottom Guitars, repairman at Retrofret of NYC, and founder of Circle Strings, Adam Buchwald knows his way around boutique, custom, and vintage guitars. Iris was birthed out of a desire to bring the same high quality build and craftsmanship to a more affordable line of guitars, and this Iris CH is no exception. 

Named for Cory Hollenhorst, the customer who helped dream up this unique design, the guitar is based on the body shape of the Circle Strings tenor guitar, and pays homage to the timeless 0-17 model with its straightforward appointments. Its extended 25.4” scale length allows this instrument to project a voice that transcends its modest stature. 

Dressed in all Honduran Mahogany, this guitar offers a warm, woody, and well-rounded tone; leaving nothing to be desired. This Iris CH brings a lot to the table in a compact package, making it a versatile instrument for any style of player.
