“After two months of playing the six-string that he (Andrew) built, it was very clear that it was the best guitar I had owned, and I’ve had a few Guilds, Martins and Matons. It became an extension of me, that beautiful cliche that guitarists search for.” Nathan Gaunt, Guitarist, Perth Western Australia. (Australian Guitar Magazine Vol 55)
This is the signature 6 string vintage acoustic guitar chosen by Nathan Gaunt. Nathan wanted the guitar to look and play like a vintage acoustic guitar. It works amazingly well in both band and solo playing and also in the studio. Vintage acoustic guitar features include a slotted head stock. 12 frets to the body of the guitar. Pyramid bridge made from Indian Ebony. A wider nut with and spacing between strings. This makes this Vintage acoustic guitar a real retro guitar.
