Here’s a chance to own a beautiful Crimson Artist Series guitar at a substantial discount. This is an ex demo model, so has seen some use, but the condition is still A1.
Stunning woods, top quality components, and British craftsmanship at its best. From a quality and specification standpoint these instruments from Crimson Guitars in Dorset are in the same league as Masterbuilt output from the big American manufacturers – handcrafted British quality at prices equivalent to imported mass produced guitars. The shape is familiar but different, and the twin humbucker pickup configuration is tried and trusted – you can see the influences behind these guitars – but these instruments have a vibe all of their own. The new Artist Series features a beautiful 6mm flamed maple top, carved as a “drop-top” giving comfortable relief for the player’s arm. Ash for the body is specially selected to complement the overall look and feel. The neck and back plates of the guitar are also in the same blue-black stained flamed maple as the top of the guitar for a wonderfully connected appearance. The neck is a comfortable C-shape, with twin carbon dual-action trussrods. All of these gorgeous woods have been finished with a thin layer of polyester lacquer giving a deep lustre, whilst allowing the wood to breath and the tonality of the guitar to come through. The 12″ radius fretboard is ebony, dots markers are hollow aluminium. Top grade materials and components are used throughout – selected with the care and attention you’d expect from the Crimson folks. Granger bridge with brass saddles, Bourns pots, handwound Crimson Classic Hooker pickups, Alpha switches, Switchcraft jack socket and string ferrules, Jescar medium jumbo frets, carbon fibre nut and Gotoh locking tuners – these are seriously well-equipped instruments!
