John Kinnaird is producing some of the best value guitars out there in terms of bang for buck. This lovely 000-12 fret has a lovely bell-like chime from the superb quality Adirondack red spruce top, coupled with loads of power and headroom. I play it hard with a fat pick, but it responds equally well, if not even better, to a gentle, more lyrical touch. The rosewood gives it plenty of depth and overtones, and it has a friendly, woody quality to the tone. The appointments are lovely, the woods used are beautiful, and the sound is mature and winning. A great all-rounder, and outstanding value when you take the cutaway and red spruce top into account. This guitar is priced at his old price. $2900
