  • Overview
  • Specification
The idea for the Rowan guitar came from a discussion with Peter Rowan, the bluegrass singer/guitarist. A smaller bodied guitar, easy to hold and play with a 12 fret neck/body join. This puts the bridge in the middle of the lower bout, regarded by many as the best place for tone and projection. Peter's idea was to have the deepest part of the body directly under the bridge, also to aid projection. The Rowan has a good balance string to string, is a very powerful finger picker, a good flat picker good for blues or classical pieces.
Each Acoustic Instrument can be made to customers own specifications, from the choice of woods throughout to the scale length, camber and fingerboard size. Along with this a choice of purfling, binding, rosette and inlays can also be offered.
