Ed Claxton's guitars here at Art of Guitar
We have long been fans of Ed Claxton's guitars here at Art of Guitar. We are impressed with the beautiful construction and details but mainly by the wonderous voice his instruments possess. Upon seeing the astonishing quality of tone woods on this guitar, we knew the tone would be magical, and we were right. The well quartered, intensely figured Brazilian Rosewood and dreamy German Spruce top blend together sonically and produce a clear, articulate voice that seems to swell as it rises from the guitar. Fingerstyle players will be delighted by melody notes that warm, round bass. This Claxton guitar is a superior instrument for the demanding player.
