The best DADGAD guitar on the market?

The N.K. Forster Model C

sk-adv-top-shot

Each guitar is named after the body shape (Model C, Model S) and then the type of soundboard used to create each guitars unique individual voice – SS, HO, SK or SK adv. So a Model C with a Sobell style soundboard would be a C-SS, a Model C with a Howe Orme inspired soundboard is a C-HO.

The Model C is a little larger in size than a traditional Martin OM or OOO,  for more bass but with a tighter waist for a crisper sound.

Forster C-SS
