The Steel String Cabaret

Base Price: $8,500.00

For most of us ideas are something we have but rarely do anything with. For John ideas are just the beginning and often… a fabulous new guitar model. The Steel String Cabaret is based on our Cabaret Nylon String Model. John decided it would be cool to see what would happen if it was made into a steel string… and what happened is Magic. Its small body size is extremely comfortable to play, the sound defies description and the compactness makes it extremely portable and easy to play. The Steel String Cabaret is reminiscent of the Vintage OO Martins, its a great fingerstyle guitar, is super responsive to the touch, has excellent sustain and has a super fat mid range. The truly unique voice of this instrument is something that will need to be heard to be believed.
