Oswego

$ 1,500.00 CAD

The Oswego Vigilant's most ergonomic model with a belly bevel, full arm bevel, lower leg cutout, full fret access and rear mounted output jack.

We shifted the upper horn to push the center of mass over the 12th fret making for a comfortable sitting and standing position and an overall "balanced" feel. This also allows for a more pronounced neck pocket which is carved with a very soft heel for comfortable upper fret access.  The lower cutaway was cut deeper to give full access to the 24th fret and with just enough of a horn to make for a comfortable seating in both casual and classical playing styles.

The neck profile of the Oswego has a C profile with 21mm @1st fret tapering to 22mm@ 12th.

The Oswego has a paddle headstock parallel to the body - different than the tilted headstocks of the MKIII, Sigil and Heron.

Guitars take a minimum 8-10 weeks to build. All guitars ship with a gig bag or hardshell case unless otherwise requested. Customers are responsible for paying import duties in their respective states. International shipping available.

Due to the nature of guitar building I may have my hands covered in glue or a few inches from a bandsaw blade.

It is best to email me with any questions and I will get back to you within 2 business days at the latest.
