Osthoff "The Bearsville GP" (used, 2014)

  • Wenge back & sides - our first Wenge guitar was a Somogyi a few years back, it is a tightly grained, wonderful tonewood. This guitar has the same characteristics, an almost piano-like, purity of note.
  • Western Red Cedar top
  • Snakewood body & fretboard bindings 
  • Ebony fingerboard with Brown Mother of Pearl Wolf Track inlays
  • Ebony bridge
  • Snakewood bridge pins
  • Wenge & Snakewood radial rosette
  • Faux tortoiseshell pickguard
  • This guitar features double sides and a titanium adjustable truss rod
  • "Stealth" truss rod cover (you push a pin through the back of the headstock to remove it)
  • Gold Gotoh 510 tuning machines with CocoBolo buttons
  • Bone Nut & Saddle
  • Snakewood heelcap and end grafts
  • "Gun stock" neck finish on the laminated neck
  • This guitar is in excellent condition, the only wear of note is on the Pick guard.
  • Ameritage case with Osthoff logo
  • John is one of the most meticulous and design oriented luthiers out there.  One of our favorite Osthoff designs is the SSP headstock, which this GP guitar features......
  • The idea of the strings going in a straight line from the tuner post over the nut onto the fretboard has always made sense to John. Long before Gore's books, John was working on his Straight String Pull (SSP) headstock. It took years of development and is now John's preferred headstock.
