Inspiring craftmanship, even tone, excellent play-ability. That is what a Gagnon Guitar is all about. The bout is 18" across and the neck is wide and fat like a 59 Gibson Les Paul. The only fret marking is a Fleur-de-lis at the 12 fret. This guitar is simple yet complex with a AAA spruce top, highly figured maple back and sides. The guitar is surrounded with exotic wood binding (purfling) with a neck that is a five piece lamination with an ornate heel. The fret board, tail piece, bridge, and finger board is made of ebony. The finish is lacquer nitro.
I exclusively use Thomastik-Infeld medium gauge round wound strings on this guitar. T-I strings are the highest quality strings I've used.
This is a loud guitar when played acoustically and has a full big band style of tone. It will ring loud on top of the most inspired drummers when coupled to the proper amp. A very comfortable guitar indeed.
