Tom Sands Model L-14, Master Madagascar Rosewood & Master Swiss Spruce


Sold Make an enquiry


Yet another highly awaited guitar from Yorkshire luthier Tom Sands, this gorgeous "funk fret" Model L absolutely delivers. The L of course stands for "large", and this mighty guitar clocks in at 16" wide across the lower bout and 5" deep, but with modern curves and a cutaway to offer plenty of accessibility and playing comfort. The multi-scale fan fret design brings a combination of mellow trebles and powerful bass, making this a guitar that works beautifully for all styles of playing. The master-grade Swiss spruce and Madagascar rosewood ensure a rich, complex tone. The bass is powerful, and across the spectrum, it's incredibly articulate and responsive to a strong, decisive attack.

Tom's choice of appointments is, as always, modern and distinctive, yet tastefully cohesive. Crelicam ebony on the fretboard, peghead overlay, and bridge provides rich wood texture, while a dramatic offset shape to the bridge accentuates the fan-fret design. The fine copper rosette accents the reddish hues in both the Madagascar rosewood as well as the ebony. Another fine example of Tom's craftsmanship.
