Default 2005 Hamblin GC, Madagascar Rosewood/European Spruce

This Grand Concert from Kent Hamblin is characterized by focus, balance, and a meaty midrange that really fills out the voice. It was built in 2005, and has over 15 years of opening up under its beltóand it shows in the ease with which it responds to both a light touch and more aggressive attack. Note definition is crisp and distinct, giving chords a technicolor aspect that we find particularly enveloping in altered tunings. A soft V neck in Mahogany with slick, fast setup makes for an effortless playing experience, and this Hamblinís further outfitted with a comfy 1 13/16Ē nut for a spacious fretting feel. The tonewoods Kent pulled together here are astounding. Madagascar Rosewood back and sides feature dramatic black silk lines, and the European Spruce top has yellowed nicely with age (all the better to show off its tight grain patterns). The weight ratio between the neck and body is dialed in for a comfortable balance that keeps the GC square on your leg. Everything about this Hamblin just feels comfortable and sweetly familiaróand itís got enough gears under the hood for years of good music yet.

"This guitar has a very clear and upfront sound. It records perfectly and is very balance. I think itís an awesome fingerstyle instrument." - Paul Heumiller

Cash Price: $4,995
