Introducing, “The Roots guitar”


We at Worlds Finest Guitars  have a neat offering for you all today. It’s a sweet hand made instrument by Jon How Guitars.
Here’s what Joh has to say about The Roots Guitar “The “Roots guitar” is a trip back to basics. Simply put, it is a guitar as basic as it can be without sacrificing anything that is important to good tone and playability.
It is made from all solid wood, and this wood has the full consideration of the luthier’s intuition when assembling the chosen materials into a guitar.
When I started thinking about producing a more affordable guitar, I wanted nothing that would detract from what I consider to be the two most important aspects of good guitars, Playability and tone. so there will not be shortcuts in the material selection or construction, only simplification.
This guitar has very simple appointments.
A simple but attractive top purfling, no back purfling, an unbound fingerboard and headstock and the biggest factor in reducing the cost, a satin finish. I also chose to use my ladder bracing on this “Roots Guitar” for a bit of grit and growl.
Check out the specs below, look at a few pics and see if this might be a guitar for you. If you are interested in having one, just pick up the phone or shoot me an email to get things started.”
