" I think of this as the
ultimate “Couch Potato Signature Model”, combining impeccable
good looks, ergonomic comfort, great playability and tone the size
of a couch. The combination of a silky German Spruce top, a light,
responsive, European maple back and stiff neck results in a rich,
complex and airy voice that is as satisfying to flatpick as to play
with the fingers. This little guitar has a full bottom end, the
“singing” upper register characteristic of European tops, great
sustain and impeccable balance. And yeah, it’s pretty darn loud
for its size. I’ve always loved maple guitars. In spite of
maple’s reputation for being too “bright” or having too much
top end, I (along with Antonio Stradivari and Jimmy D’Aquisto)
have always had great luck with the combination of European spruce
and European maple .
with all Luthiers’ Choice guitars, I personally selected each
piece of wood used in this guitar and personally executed all three
stages of voicing. I had high hopes for this little gem and it
exceeded my expectations. This is the perfect guitar, folks, for
practicing all your Michael Hedges moves, and the perfect
accompaniment for singing “Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog”, “Bohemian
Rhapsody”, and “Stairway To Heaven” . . . in the privacy, of
course, of one’s own living room. "
