Details

California-based luthier Kirk Sand has been building since the 1970s, crafting a wide range of electric and acoustic guitars. His specialty, though, is his electric nylon string. Initially designed with Chet Atkins in mind as a feedback-resistant mahogany guitar, Kirk's Rosewood Model has a stronger acoustic presence. Aside from the lack of a soundhole, the construction and bracing are much like a standard, traditional classical. Utilizing the same RMC pickup system that you've seen on Godin guitars, this guitar has a wide array of tonal options when plugged in. With a slim body just over 3" in depth, and a comfortably wide nut and D-profile neck, this guitar has excellent playability, and would make a great crossover nylon string for an electric or steel-string player.

The very thin finish on this Rosewood Model does show some signs of cosmetic wear, such as some buckle rash on the back, some wear from the right hand thumb above the strings, and stray, scattered dings. But otherwise it's in excellent structural and playing condition.
