2017 Millman Custom 00 12 Fret – £1599

NEW ARRIVAL  Based in Devon, and having studied under Brook guitars, James Millman is fast gaining a reputation as an outstanding British luthier. His guitars have a very natural feel to them, traditionally built using hand tools and minimal jigs. Wherever possible he uses  reclaimed timbers, and all his guitars are finished with a hand rubbed, organic oil finish and French polish. This custom built example is a 00 size with 12 fret neck join, and is designed to replicate a Larson Brothers guitar. It features an Adirondack Spruce top with Honduras Rosewood back and sides, Ebony fingerboard, and Rosewood bridge. The herringbone rosette and binding, and Larson inspired fingerboard inlays are a classy touch. Tonally the guitar has great clarity, single note separation and sustain. It fingerpicks very evenly with great balance, and as a strummer it has a dynamic punch. The guitar has a genuine hand made feel, the tone and playability of which is excellent. The guitar comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
