The Lakestone SL American Black Walnut and Englemann Spruce.
Hand made in the UK, Lakestone Guitars are boutique Luthiers with a passion for real innovation. Working from their base in the heart of the Black Country they produce exceptionally beautiful instruments that play and sound as good as they look.
The essence of this design is the shape of a jumbo but with a small body size. Keeping the body as deep as a jumbo compensates for any bass loss, 105mm depth at neck joint to 125mm depth at the lower bout. Because the of the extra depth, we have included the bevel feature as standard on this model.
The bracing design is Lakestone’s own 'Sturgeon Bracing' which draws on classic bracing patterns and innovates using modern engineering principles.
The slim neck and low action brings comfort and speed to the experience of playing.
This guitar is a great all-round player! It is suited to both fingerpicking and strumming and with plenty of projection and volume. The walnut gives warmth to the mid-range and is balanced by the spruce top which gives a sweet, harmonically rich top end.
