Another amazing Magpie from at Cardinal Instruments!!!!! These amazing guitars are handmade by Sam Evans and the folks at Cardinal in Austin Texas. Each Cardinal has its own distinct personality and this one really exemplifies the unique characteristics of these guitars. This one has a one piece spalted Sycamore body, to the quarter sawn black walnut neck, Jumbo EVO frets, a great sounding set od Lollar El Rayo pickups, a trapeze tailpiece and a 25.5 scale length. The hand carved neck is a bit on the chunkier side and fits so well in your hand. Cardinal are unique instruments but when you play one the sound and feel are very familiar, like a vintage guitar with some new twists!!!!!!
