Notes: Ephraim Logan was a pioneer fur trapper in the Cache Valley and Bear River Mountains, in the northern part of Utah's rugged Wasatch Range. The town that bears his name is a tidy community, home to Utah State University, an historic Mormon Tabernacle, and Ryan Thorell, Luthier. A creative and meticulous craftsman, Thorell has built a growing fan base, including top endorsers like Concord Jazz artist Frank Vignola.

This remarkable example of his Corrina model features all cedar construction, including the back and sides and neck, as well as the quartersawn X-braced soundboard. The back and sides in particular are crafted of a very rare curly variety of the tonewood, with dramatic bookmatched chevron flame throughout. Most amazing of all, however, is the weight. Tipping the scales at an incredible 3lb.14oz, the guitar is simply a phenomenon: ut's by far the lightest full size steel string guitar we've ever played. There's nothing even close.

A versatile design for both finger and pick style play, the 15" body tapers over an inch from the endpin to the heel, for superior bass response and a comfortable ergonomic fit. Polished rosewood binding and herringbone trim border the body, with an ornate classical style rosette inlaid around the soundhole. The neck has a full D profile, with smooth low action over a solid ebony fingerboard with generous 1 3/4" nut, and enhanced fretboard access with the Venetian cutaway body. The voice is open and deeply resonant, with excellent clarity and volume, all faithfully captured by the K&K Pure Mini pickup system mounted under the solid maple bridgeplate.

A marvel of tone, playability and player comfort, this exceptional instrument has been carefully maintained, without pick, buckle, thumb or fretwear. Apart from a small patch of playwear by the bridge, the guitar appears otherwise in pristine condition. Thorell's flat tops are available only on custom order at this time: here's an opportunity to jump the wait list, and bag a bargain in the process. One only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings (.012-.054). 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. The action may be lowered or raised to your requirements with the adjustable bridge.

Case: Original deluxe arched blonde tolex Cedar Creek plush lined hardshell case.
