Goodall 6 string Guitar

Is a one-of-a-kind Jumbo sized instrument built in 2004 by famed Hawaiian luthier James Goodall. Its back is a flamboyant fiddle-back mahogany, the only such wood any of us will ever see. He bought all there was from an old man in Arkansas and used every bit on this instrument. There was not enough to even do the sides, for which we had to settle for AAA grade quilted mahogany, a wood some luthiers would sell their first-born for. Its top is the rare Port Orford Cedar (rare in guitars - the Japanese buy most of the wood produced and use it for special furniture). This wood comes from one small area near the Oregon coast and is actually a type of cypress. Its velocity of sound approaches that of Adirondack Spruce. It also is the top wood that is least affected by changes in humidity. The guitar is bound in Brazilian Rosewood. The Bard Rocks uses it for pieces that require greater volume or faster and more articulate playing.
