Gramann James Jumbo Cutaway Guitar #98

$ 4,200.00
From Bob Gramann: "These are jumbo bodies, 16 1/4" across the lower bout.  Each has the large deep sound you expect from a jumbo body and the richness you expect from one of my guitars.  With the exception of the baritone, these have a 25.4" scale, trading ease of play for a bit more pop and punch in the notes.  I had to stop gigging with my James models because I kept getting distracted by the sound.  If you like big guitars, you will like these."
Englemann Spruce top, Persimmon Back and sides. "Evo" super-hard frets. Hard case included.
Bob Gramann is a respected luthier throughout the midatlantic region. Based in Fredericksburg, VA, he has been building guitars since 1992 and has been a player for over 40 years.
Built with the fingerpicker in mind, each of these instruments sings louder than than its size. The top braces on all are scalloped and the bridges are carved to be light to allow the top to respond quickly to both high and low notes. The saddles are tall allowing easy picking and a strong response to a soft touch. The models are named after rivers in Virginia.
Bob says "Most important is achieving such a rich, full sound that it is loud enough for performances without amplification. Amazingly, even tiny adjustments can enhance both tone and volume, producing a responsive instrument that feels good to play. Building these "live" guitars has become almost an obsession. Any idea for a new feature or an improvement means I have to build a guitar to try it out. I build only a few instruments each year, so I have always tried to build something I would want to play. So far, I feel successful. And, I feel honored by the great players that have bought my instruments."
