David Worthy 'Talisman' Western Red Cedar / East Indian Rosewood Acoustic Guitar


Victorian luthier David Worthy has been building exceptional instruments to order for decades, and we're very lucky to be one of the select stores that carry his fantastic guitars. This small-body guitar is his 'Talisman' model, similar to a scaled-down jumbo shape - it's a wonderful, deep-sounding fingerpicking guitar that works especially well in open tunings.

This guitar features a gorgeous Western Red Cedar soundboard, paired with East Indian Rosewood back-and-sides, mahogany neck, Spalted Maple rosette and pitch-black ebony fretboard and bridge. For ultimate player comfort and feedback, David has included a top bout bevel, and an oval second soundhole facing the player.

All Worthy guitars are built by hand near Dandenong, Victoria, and feature a number of custom appointments; hand-scalloped and tuned braces, Carbon Fibre ultra-lightweight reinforced necks, laminated tail blocks and luxurious Gotoh 510 tuning machines. This instrument is a true one-of-a-kind, handcrafted instrument with an airy, balanced tone that is perfect for all styles of music. Comes with hardshell case.
