Default Two Hands Guitar Co. ~Solis~ #1 of 2 (Grand Auditorium)

Hello again, folks...as I said before, I have three guitars that were built on spec, to show at Tom B'sox B.I.G. celebration, and now that the party is over, I'm offering them for sale. If you find yourself interested in one of them, ask me and I can point you in the direction of a number of people who played them at the show, and can offer their impression of each of them.

The second guitar is my "Solis" model. It has beautiful quartersawn, straight-grained old-growth Cocobolo Rosewood back, sides & rear head plate; a Mastergrade Sitka Spruce top; an old-growth one-piece Honduran Mahogany neck; abundant flamed-Pyinma appointments and trim; an arm bevel; bound sound port and sound hole; plus a bound & purfled fretboard and front head plate veneer.

The "Solis" model is similar in profile to the Taylor Grand Auditorium. It has a 16" wide lower bout...and all of the power and presence that accompanies a guitar this size...but surprisingly, feels smaller than it actually is, because of the ergonomic comfort of the arm bevel. It has a dynamic range, and is amazingly versatile. You can find details and specs below, but first lets take a look at a few photos of this Solis. Thanks for looking.

I want you to feel totally comfortable with this purchase, so I do offer a 3-day trial period. If you find that this guitar isn't a good fit for you, send it back, and I will refund the purchase price (minus shipping charges) as long as it is in the same condition as when it left me.

If you have questions, or thoughts you'd like to share, you can send me a PM through the AGF, or email me at TwoHandsGuitars@gmail.com

Joel
