Mobirise

Woodsman 00

"This is about the art of the guitar,  not the art on the guitar."

In keeping with the simpler designs of vintage instruments the standard Woodsman does not come with a bound headstock or fretboard.  The headstock doesn't have a  backstrap.  The purfling lines are reduced and the fret ends are simply beveled.  The Woodsman comes with a traditional style rosette and the neck is not laminated.  There is traditional ladder back bracing as opposed to contemporary lattice bracing.  These differences from the other models all contribute to the traditional look and/or sound of the Woodsman. This offsets the extras it does come with allowing the Woodsman to keep the standard base price.
