2007 Patrick James Eggle Kanuga – £1899
NEW ARRIVAL As one of the UK’s leading luthiers, I was very disappointed to hear that Patrick is no longer making acoustic guitars, however that just makes his used guitars even more desirable. The Kanuga is a classic slope shoulder dreadnought guitar, but unusually has a Cedar top with Rosewood back and sides. This adds noticeable warmth to the sheer power and dynamic range of this guitar which can cut through just about any mix. It has incredible presence and bass response, yet retains a good balance with strong midrange and bright powerful trebles. Plus the visuals of the guitar are really striking – classic lines, with the beautiful falling Maple leaf fingerboard inlays adding real class. The guitar’s in very good condition, with just one noticeable ding above the soundhole, and plays very easily. The guitar comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
