No. 7634. Includes hardshell case. This is a one-off "custom" Dreadnaught model, with stunning exotic tonewoods and superb craftsmanship throughout. HsienMo scored some "amazing" Honduran Rosewood and we thought......"DREADNAUGHT!!" It sounds fabulous, with full, rich and powerful and glorious tone. This is a "players" instrument. If made in the US or EU this beauty would cost 5 times more!
Many players would love to own & play a high spec, finely crafted imported instrument, made with beautiful exotic all solid tonewoods, BUT most prefer to NOT invest $5000-15000. Our wonderful Hsienmo Guitars have been compared, tested, examined and played all over Europe, Asia and beyond. They are proven top performers and are an excellent value. Please check the YouTube demos & comparison videos, as well as reviews. This is the Golden Age of Lutherie and HsienMo's founder/Luthier Li Chen is on the cutting edge, blending ancient techniques with modern precision wood cutting/shaping capability for improved fit, finish, straight & stabile necks.
Some dope about Honduras Rosewood:
Pricing/Availability: Diminishing availability, though still seen in both lumber and turning blank form. Prices are in the upper range for an imported hardwood. Honduran rosewood is known for its excellent acoustic properties, possessing an excellent tap-tone, making it well-suited for acoustic guitars, xylophone keys, and other acoustic musical instruments. Due to its high density & toughness it's a better choice than Brazilian Rosewood in the long run. It is however VERY expensive!
We appreciate Hsienmo's Floating Fingerboard, dual carbon fiber neck stiffeners and other common sense neck innovations that combine to make for a more trouble free playing experience for decades. This is NOT just another cheap Chinese Guitar. These fine Guitars play & "sound" fabulous and easily compare with Guitars costing thousands more!
Impressive Specs include:
* 15.5 inch lower bout width
