The" Cowboy 000 " from Pinol is our aged Canadian Sitka Spruce, Mahogany powerhouse OM Auditorium, a true tank. We upped this with an incredible, striking set of Mahogany. Incredibly big and open with great response from the deep bass to crisp mids and highs. Mahogany, which is a durable yellowish-brown to reddish-brown usually moderately hard and heavy wood of a West Indian tree (Swietenia mahagoni) is widely used for cabinetwork and fine instruments, offers a stunning look. With a straight, fine, and even grain, and is relatively free of voids and pockets, these premium hardwoods exude quality. Also, considered a great lightweight option to other heavier tone woods. The great debate of best builds and tonewoods are alive and well. Try this one, and you will agree either way that this is one amazing guitar.
Let's start by talking about extras this lovely guitar has. If you look towards the headstock, you will see a handcrafted geometric architecture decoration that took our master luthier 15 hours to complete. Our acoustic guitars are joined with a dovetail, and this one is not an exception. Looking at the zipper back strip, you will notice that the book matched Mahogany looks impressive, giving this joint a classy look.
As we look at the book matched two-piece back, we can see the beautiful dark-brown lines mixed with an orange background, this is a one-of-a-kind look. Our sides and back pieces are from the same log, allowing an equal distribution of body strength and color contrast. Our Herringbone is striking, and many small shops opt out of this complex job. As you can observe, it has herringbone around the top of the instrument, sandwiched between rare Cocobolo Rosewood binding. This job usually takes about 25 hours to complete. Our tailpiece, fretboard, bridge and back head plate all come from the same tree as well. Cocobolo Rosewood is a rare and exotic tone wood, and finishing our instruments with this sought after tone wood is a treat for our customers.
We finished the inside with a regular x-bracing pattern with a non-scalloped finish. Also, we hand-voiced and tap-toned each instrument and carved accordingly, this process takes our well-trained luthiers an additional 30 hours to complete. The body is slightly tapered and extremely comfortable. This guitar is perfect for a studio or the everyday hustle. Being a one-off, this guitar will turn heads !
One of the most important parts for a sweet playing instrument in our opinion here at Pinol is the choice of a well playing top and the finishing touches of a professional set-up. Our Cedar and Spruce is among the best in the tone wood market, and putting these tops on our instruments allows our customers to hear the true sweetness of our finished products.
A professional set-up is as important as a well-built instrument, and here at our shop we dedicate an additional 25 hours to this complex science. Adjusting the two-way truss rod , choosing the correct size of frets, dressing the frets and adjusting for a low profile string positioning can be a true test of knowledge left only to an experienced luthier. Before our instruments are shipped, we communicate with the owners on their personalized set-up position, allowing a personalized professional set-up at the time of arrival. Remember, our instruments take around 165 hours from inception to the final product.
