Kostal MD Cutaway, Madagascar Rosewood & German Spruce (McDonough)
This guitar is currently being built and is available for pre-order. Payment will be taken now and we will get in touch when the guitar is ready to be shipped.
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."
