James Goodall represents an artisan who is at the pinnacle of his profession. Superb craftsmanship, an exacting finesse for detail and wood choice and a robust three dimensional tone are qualities you will discover on every Goodall guitar. This piece is built with sitka spruce top and East Indian rosewood.

Sitka spruce gives the guitar a powerful, direct tone that is capable of retaining its clarity even when played aggressively. It exhibits a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone. On the back and sides, East Indian rosewood complements with a strong complex bottom end and imparts an overall warmth to the tone of the guitar. A final touch by James Goodall completes the tone to produce a guitar that is certain to delight even the most demanding player.

This pre-owned grand concert is in excellent condition with little play wear. The guitar has aged exceptionally well since 1997 to give a complex tone made only possible with time. With a brand new piece listing at USD$7300 today, this is certainly one of the most value-for-money Goodall guitars we have in our collection right now.
