“The Standard is a guitar with a difference!”
The Standard series, with its graceful curving lines, is a larger-bodied guitar with a clarity that is uncanny! The amazingly rich, powerful bass and midrange is matched to a brilliant treble and shimmering harmonic overtones. Arguably the most balanced guitar available from Goodall Guitars, James feels that the Standard model is the crowning achievement of his luthierie career. With approximately the same proportions as the ever popular dreadnought shape, the resemblance stops with the size. More than one musician has commented that “this guitar makes others sound like they are stuffed full of cotton.”
“This guitar makes others sound like they are stuffed full of cotton, you have to hear it to believe it.”
Whether you are in your living room, at the recording studio, or on stage, this one excels. Truly it can be said that this is the Standard by which all other acoustic guitars are measured.
The Standard Model Is Available With the Following Category Defining Option
Double the strings for a rich, natural chorus effect, built for ease of playability.
