The S&P Showcase guitars are the upper echelon of the entire line. Superbly crafted in a separate, secluded acoustic studio where each guitar can be individually & meticulously crafted by a handful of the finest luthiers in the business. Being artists in their own right, these luthiers devote much time and attention to every aspect in the process of building these high-end guitars. Both the look and more importantly the sound of these fine instruments are brought to fruition by the passion and artistry of the luthiers who lend their craftsmanship to each guitar. The Showcase models are some of the best acoustic guitars we have ever built. Featuring only the highest grade of Select Pressure Tested solid spruce tops which are tuned and supported by the strong, yet extra-light, Adirondack spruce bracing to achieve an exceptionally dynamic response. The Showcase bodies are complemented by the sound and look of the finest solid wood back & sides and then finished with a high-gloss Custom Polished finish. The mahogany necks are sanded and finished by hand to provide remarkable comfort and playability up and down the rosewood fingerboard. The classic aesthetic beauty of these acoustic guitars are accentuated by the intricate wood rosette, natural wood binding, high-ratio gold plated tuners with cream buttons, deluxe Tusq bridge pins by Graphtech and the hand contoured high-gloss headstocks.
