These models are gig ready right out of the box to perform in the most demanding large venues and just as enjoyable when playing alone in your living room or studio. We work hard to maintain the exquisite craftsmanship and imaginative techniques learned in the Kenmare Street shop, using only top quality woods and components for each and every one of our models.
