The Crossroads series pays homage to the style and sound of classic instruments from 1930’s America.
Michael Sanden selected the timbers, making the tops a precise measurement so they flex and respond to the players attack. He then braced the instrument with his own patterns to give each guitar its own personality. He wanted to make a guitar that would have the sound that any musician, professional or amateur could appreciate. To make the guitar look authentic to the 1930’s era, Michael added a dark stain to the timbers that we call Whiskey Barrel to make the Crossroads look historic and simply elegant.
"At £149 with built in electronics this dreadnought shaped guitar is a fantastic bargain. Whether you’re a beginner looking for a guitar to get started or you’re more experienced and would like a low cost option for gigs/busking then this guitar will suit you nicely. With a mahogany body and neck this guitar provides a warm and rich sound that is in my opinion unmatched at this price point."
