Hawaiian luthier James Goodall and his shop have developed perhaps the most immediately recognizable signature tone in the world of boutique guitars. If you love lush, enveloping overtones, a Goodall's the guitar for you. This powerful grand concert sports a deliciously honey-colored Alaskan Sitka Spruce top, the ubiquitous East Indian Rosewood back and sides, pretty curly koa appointments, and a huge presence for a smaller guitar. Absolutely ideal for the fingerstyle player who wants a wall of complex sound without a large guitar, this almost unplayed Goodall is in near mint condition but is priced a full $1000 under list price. From the abalone rosette to the curly koa heel plate to the curly koa and purfling backstrip, the design elements of this beautiful guitar are very complementary and give it an organic, complete look that's exceedingly tasteful. If there's a reason not to love this one, I've sure not found it.
