This particular Goodall was curated for the 1995 NAMM show and features some of the most amazing Hawaiian Koa you will find on a guitar. The guitar is tastefully decorated with dove inlays and a decorative abalone backstrip.

This guitar exhibits the depth and sweetness of tone one can only expect from a well-aged guitar. The body size gives it plenty of headroom and volume with all the benefits of koa as a tonewood. Expect plenty of sweet overtones on the trebles and a delightful woody tone on this guitar.

The consigned guitar has been very well cared for by its owner and is as good as new. Large slabs of Hawaiian Koa with such richness in colour and evenness of grain is becoming increasingly pricey to acquire. With a new Royal Hawaiian Goodall guitar costing more than SGD$15,000 today, we find this guitar to be quite a bargain and expect it hold and appreciate in value in time.
