Here we have a guitar from one of the shop favorites, Franklin Guitars. This is a1987 Prairie state model in Curly Koa back and side and a Sitka Spruce top. One of the defining features of the Prairie state model is the wide upper and lower bouts, providing the guitar with a large sonorous sound. The Curly Koa used on this guitar is of a super high quality with intense figuring running the entire length of the back and sides. We find that apart from being beautiful, the Koa wood lends a great midrange punch, evening out the tonal response of what could have been a bass heavy guitar. Another great instrument fro the Franklin Guitar company.
