This gorgeous handmade custom guitar is a dandy, and Crowder guitars are becoming the choice of many pros!
And when we say “handmade” we do mean handmade! This guitar is built from start to finish by Richie Crowder! As such, it has some character! You can see and feel the evidence of this when you behold it. To me, it’s more similar to those early and highly sought after handmade Martin Guitars where you can see the evidence of human craftsmanship, as opposed to the newer assembly line models that have no soul. This one was built by a real luthier, not a robot.
It features exhibition grade curly Paduak back and sides, a Red Spruce (Adirondack) top, Ebony Fingerboard with 1 3/4” spacing and Ebony Bridge, Forward Shifted and Scalloped Bracing, Bone Nut and Saddle, Diamond Pattern Fretboard Inlays, and Tortoise Binding and Pick Guard...so pretty much every high end feature a bluegrasser could want.
The Paduak is an interesting tonewood. It has a lot of the clarity, dryness of tone, and balance of a mahogany guitar while retaining a full, deep, rumbling tone of a Rosewood Guitar. So in addition to it being absolutely stunning it also gives you a lot of the best of both worlds totally speaking. The notes jump out with power and quick response making this guitar a joy to play. Action is setup for standard bluegrass play - best tone and playability. Includes free pro setup, free Hardshell Case, and free shipping!
