Comins GCS-1 Semi-Hollow Guitar - Violin Burst
I've always been a big fan of Bill Comin's guitars. I first came across his Guitar Craft Series several years ago during my time at Ivor Mairants. Designed by Bill and built in South Korea to his exact specifications, the GCS-1 is a solidly built semi-hollow guitar designed for musicians looking for a well-made practical and roadworthy musical instrument. Inherently versatile, it can produce a myriad of tonalities suitable for blues, rock, country, and jazz playing. It is adorned by a laminated flame Maple top with a laminated Sapele back, and the sides/internal block structure are routed from a solid wood core. This design yields a balanced and even articulation with enhanced sustain characteristics.
Included is a TKL hard-shell case.
Bill personally ensures that every instrument receives a precision fret-dress and setup before being shipped. I’m confident these instruments will exceed your expectations for performance and value.
