They don’t build ‘em like this anymore. Literally. Gary Southwell no longer builds with Brazilian Rosewood, and not only does this A Series boast one of the last sets of Brazilian he's ever used, but it also features an exquisitely tight-grained German Spruce top given to Gary by none other than Julien Bream. This is Gary’s 250th guitar, built in 2008 and featuring the distinct headstock and Rodgers tuner arrangement of his A Series, as well as engraved bone appointments, an arm rest, and Florentine Cutaway.
The Maple neck has a slim profile that’s easy on the hands, and thanks to the cutaway and elevated fingerboard, all the frets are quickly beneath your fingertips. The bass response has an extra helping of clarity and definition to really let those bass notes stand out in the mix, without overpowering the other registers. Gary’s custom Rodgers tuners glide effortlessly, and the overall lightweight build (only 3lbs 12oz) and slim neck make for an exercise in easy playability. In short, this Southwell A Series excels on both fronts, ergonomic and tonal. And there won’t be any more quite like it from Gary.
