1979 Rob Armstrong 000 – £1499

NEW ARRIVAL  Rob Armstrong has been making custom made, one off guitars since 1972, and some of his more famous customers include George Harrison, Alvin Lee, Joe Brown, Bert Jansch, Gordon Giltrap and Martin Barre – a very eclectic bunch indeed. This particular guitar features a tightly grained Spruce top, with the most beautifully figured Indian Rosewood back and sides. Tonally the guitar is very resonant, beautifully balanced and exceptionally responsive. As a 000 size guitar it works superbly with fingerstyle, although it handles strumming really well. The tone is bright, crisp and resonant, and single notes ring out with full tone and great sustain. At 41 years old the guitar has a mature tone, and plenty of nicks, dings and lacquer checking. The neck feels comfortable, and the action is good. The guitar comes in a non original hard case.
