This Kostal MD Cutaway model is scheduled to commence building in 2021, and will feature a gorgeous set of Madagascan Rosewood for the back and sides and Jason Kostal's preferred top tonewood, German Spruce.
This model will feature Jason's Florentine cutaway, decorative end graft and two-tone headstock veneer.
Here's what Jason says about his MD model:
"The flagship Kostal guitar. The MD has the robust sound associated with a dreadnought guitar however, this “modified” version has a relocated waist that is a bit tighter than a traditional dreadnought and a larger sound hole which helps redefine it as a fingerstyle instrument, while still maintaining versatility for other playing styles. This guitar has everything a performing musician could want… deep resonant bass, balanced mid-range, and beautiful warm trebles coupled with projection and clarity that allow the musician to realize the complete dynamic range of their music and playing style."
