  • AVAILABLE - Hoffman Concert 12 Koa (used)

    REVIEW

    http://www.theacousticmusicco.co.uk/reviews/Hoffman-C12.pdf

    This is one of the easiest guitars to play that I've had. Its light with a 24.75" scale, twelve frets to the body and a cutaway, unbelievably responsive and a demonstration of what a great luthier can do with Koa. In mass-produced guitars Koa is usually considered to be bright but lacking in depth and warmth. Not so in the hands of Charlie Hoffman.

    In very good condition.

  • AVAILABLE - Pava A5 Player - Sunburst Gloss

    Pava's mandolins sell as quickly as I can get them and there is a very good reason, they are incredible, immaculate fit and finish, the best tonewoods available and fantastic tone.

    This absolutely gorgeous Player A5 has great volume with an immense chop and great depth and warmth. It plays beautifully and responds equally well to the gentlest touch or going for it with a heavy pick. Pick your style from bluegrass to classical, this is a mandolin for everyone.

  • AVAILABLE - Northfield F5s

    Northfield's F5S has been getting a fantastic reception stateside and with very good reason.

    They are bluegrass monsters with a strong and powerful chop and much, much more, strong well defined bass notes, rich and complex mids and clear trebles. The balance and projection is remarkable as is the depth of tone. Great for the aforementioned bluegrass and almost any other style.
