Comins GCS-16 Vintage Blond Archtop

Sold

Bill Comin's new GCS-16 model just in! 

We'll let Bill himself tell the story...

"A while back, I was given the opportunity to visit and work closely with a South Korean guitar manufacturing facility. Arriving not knowing what to expect, I quickly learned that this was a team of dedicated craftspeople, many of them having decades of experience in instrument building. And I came to see that given a good design, they were quite capable of producing some great sounding instruments with a high degree of structural integrity. 

In time, they graciously agreed to work with me to produce a new line of guitars. These are original designs being build to my specifications with close collaboration. Choosing from their pallet of available materials, I've selected only components that meet a high standard of tone, stability, and consistency. Critical specifications are adhered to at every step along with way, and the coup de grace is that I'm personally ensuring that every instrument receives a precision setup before going to its final destination. I'm confident these instruments will exceed your expectations for performance and value."

We're really loving the new GCS-16. Killer tones, playability, and quality at very affordable prices. Yes please! Priced with hardshell case.
