2003 Rob Armstrong 12 String – £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 guitar is a jumbo 12 string, featuring a tightly grained Spruce top, with the most beautifully figured Birds Eye Maple back and sides. Tonally the guitar is very resonant, producing a big room filling sound. The tone is bright and crisp, with an underlying depth, plus great sustain. At 20 years old the guitar has matured really well, and is in good condition, just a few nicks and dings. The neck feels good, and the action is very comfortable. The guitar has a high end LR Baggs I Beam pickup system fitted, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
