TreeHouse Guitars Ember, Local Birdseye Maple & Salvaged Sonora Island Sitka Spruce


Make an enquiry


We couldn't be more thrilled to help Zach Lefebvre of TreeHouse Guitars in Canada launch a brand new model: his vintage-inspired acoustic-electric wonder, the Ember! Whether you're a blues player looking for something to rip some slide licks on, an acoustic player looking for an instrument for diving into jazz standards, or a singer-songwriter wanting to add a unique, focused voice to your arsenal, the Ember Series models are the ticket. It may be small, but with that maple clarity and mid-range focus, you can draw plenty out played acoustic. But it sure does sound fabulous using those hand-wound single coil pickups, too.

As per usual with Zach's guitars, we've got commitment to local and repurposed materials everywhere, from the salvaged Sonora Island Sitka top, local maple used for the body and neck, to the recycled piano key ebony saddle. The hand-hammered steel pickguard bracket and tailpiece and the hand-rubbed Osmo oil sunburst finish it off with an organic, lively feel in keeping with Zach's aesthetic.
