Notes: For over thirty years, James Goodall has built some of the finest acoustic guitars available anywhere. Starting in the early '70's in his native Southern California, Goodall honed his craft as part of a group of young builders who became mainstays of modern lutherie: Taylor, Deering, Stelling, and Breedlove among them. After a sojourn in Hawaii, Goodall is now based in Ft. Bragg, CA, maintaining his uncompromising standards of craft with a highly systematic approach to materials and design. Like a fine archtop builder, Goodall hand graduates the thickness of his soundboards to optimize the balance of fundamentals and harmonics. The result are instruments of surpassing acoustic response, with an excellent balance of sensitivity and headroom.

A product of Goodall's famed Kona workshop, this spectacular guitar is an example of his Grand Concert series, which combines an OM/000 width body, with a dreadnought style depth. This design combines the clarity and balance of the smaller body with the enhanced bass response of D style guitars. The extravagant AAA flame ample body enhances projection, and the lightweight, resonant Alaska cedar soundboard adds partially scalloped bracing for greater sustain.

Ideal for both finger and pick style play, the GC has a comfortable light "D" profile neck with matte finish, and a wonderfully balanced, open voice with warm, smooth resonance. Trim accents include curly maple binding, abalone trim, and ebony strap pins. This example is in immaculate condition, free of pick, buckle, thumb or fingerboard wear, with smooth low action over fine original fretwork.

A versatile performer, and an exceptionally handsome example of a master's work. Call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge bronze strings (.013-.056). The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 5/64" to 6/64" at the 12th fret, with moderate relief for acoustic playing with medium strings.
