Notes: A European trained builder whose instruments combine traditional design with exacting contemporary standards of craft, luthier Bryant Trenier is a fine visual designer as well as a meticulous fabricator. The result is an instrument as pleasing to the eye as it is to the ear and the hand.

A full depth guitar in the classic tradition, this Trenier Magnolia is carved of extravagantly figured tiger flame maple, with a hand-graduated, tap tuned, solid spruce soundboard. Premium features include handmade ebony hardware, D'Aquisto style f-holes and a floating Kent Armstrong Handmade humbucking pickup. The neck profile is an easy gentle D, with smooth low action over a fresh high precision setup, on a fingerboard of solid black ebony. With it's finely carved X- braced soundboard, this instrument is a true acoustic guitar, open and forward, with clarity, punch and an even response along the entire scale. The voice is full and bright, with volume and projection more typical of a much older instrument.

At just 6lb 3oz, the guitar is happily lightweight, and nimbly balanced on the lap or he strap. Those savvy enough to bag a Benedetto or Monteleone when they were still bargains can appreciate the value of spotting talent on the way up. Simply spectacular: one only, call now.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge nickel roundwound strings. The guitar will accommodate lighter or heavier gauge strings, according to preference. String action is set at 4/64" to 5/64" 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 plushlined arched black hardshell case.
