Jimmy Caldwell has building guitars since 1979 and continues today, working on his own (no helpers/apprentices doing the work here) in his workshop in Spicewood, Texas. Jimmy's uniquely beautiful guitars are among the finest sounding I've yet to come across. Some of the design elements in Jimmy's guitars owe a nod to the great Steve Klein who's many innovations have added to the sonic pallette of many of today's finest guitars. But Caldwells really do have a voice of their own. This Grand Concert, with it's foward shifted X bracing, offers a sound that combines the complex sound of many modern guitars with a vintage sound and a strengthened high end. Our first Grand Concert sold immedeatly and I've been patiently waiting for the next. Well, it's here and it's spectacular - every bit as good as the first one! And it's gorgeous too with it's chocately brown Ziricote back and sides, contrasting flamed Maple bindings, elegantly carved bridge, matching front and back headstock overlays and top grade Abalone rosette. Stunning!!
