Guitar Specifics

Jeff Dwarshuis’ guitar is handmade of the finest materials for musical instruments.  The top of the guitar is cedar wood which creates a charming mellow sound and is reinforced with a unique construction called Lattice Bracing which emphasizes sound clarity and brightness. This combination of material and construction gives the listener an experience of a warm sounding guitar with a clear tone. The guitar has a larger base which projects higher volume allowing the listener to hear the guitar’s most subtle features.
