Do sunbursts get much better? Georgia luthier Isaac Stroupe, the man behind Minerva Fretworks, comes to guitar building with a thorough background in violin building and a passion for the less common Golden Era guitars. His 14-fret L-00 is a stand-out, instant classic, and a prime example of what one can expect when purchasing a Minerva guitar. Mahogany, Adirondack spruce, 00, and that moody sunburst? Chef's kiss! Delicately sealing it up is a home-brewed, hand-rubbed spirit varnish allows the guitar to breathe, making it extremely dynamic and responsive, ideal for both picking or fingerstyle playing. This Minerva L-00 is perfect for those looking for a high quality, feather-light, hand-built guitar that feels and sounds as if it was 85+ years old.
