Details

"The Karol Signature Model is the first original Karol body shape, inspired by elements of classic guitar design - a rounded lower bout, deep waist, and gently curved neck joint. Typically built with a 16 inch lower bout, the guitar produces balanced tones across the full range."

Toronto-based luthier Anthony Karol produces only a select number of guitars each year, each one a custom work of art. With a wide, nearly 16" lower bout and deep 4-1/2" body, it has large guitar power with the balance and sweetness imparted by a nicely curved waist. With an all koa guitar, you might expect nothing but bright highs and mids, but this guitar will surprise you with a rich bass and mahogany-like warmth across all registers. The nuanced voice is well-suited to solo fingerstyle and vocal accompaniment. The low oval neck profile is easy playing all the way up the neck, and a generous cutaway opens up possibilities beyond the 14th fret.

We're unsure of the year on this pre-owned guitar (Anthony has been building since 1999), but it's in excellent condition, save for some light wear on the pickguard.
