The Goodall Aloha series is fast becoming our favourite when it comes to recommending a handbuilt acoustic guitar that is worth every penny. The Aloha model marries the warmth and punch of a well aged sitka spruce with the sweet dynamic overtones of an aged Hawaiian koa, resulting in a tone that is intimate and expressive.
This grand concert model was built in Fort Bragg and sports longer lasting Evo gold fretwire and a premium ameritage hardcase. It has been kept in immaculate condition by its previous owner and is as good as new. A brand new piece today will cost about SGD$9300, making this a very worthy investment for any player looking for a handbuilt guitar that will hold or better its value in time.
