Made for Bill Kaman by Jim Merrill in 2009, this gorgeous dreadnought boasts the aesthetic and tonal response that makes Jim's guitars so sought after and inspiring to play. 
Built in a jaw-dropping Cocobolo set for the back and sides paired with an Adirondack Spruce top, there's heaps of character to this vintage inspired powerhouse, with huge lows and a certain sparkling clarity to the decay of each note thanks to the choice combination in the back and sides. 
The playability is stellar, with great articulation and separation all the way through to the dusty end of the fretboard and no loss of body to each note as you climb further up. 
A truly versatile instrument that would be as perfect for a singer/songwriter as it would an instrumental guitar player, with a K&K Pickup already installed.
