Here's an incredible Traugott Model R forged from very tightly flamed Koa, the kind that is very rare indeed. And who better to perform with this instrument than famed Celtic fingerstylist William Coulter? Coulter owned this guitar for several years before it ended up in our hands. The Koa has a deep, rich color and perfectly symmetrical figure on the back. The top is one of the silkiest pieces of German Spruce we've seen. It's full of medullary rays or silking, which is an attribute only the very best tops possess. Jeff adorned this beauty with a top border and rosette of select blue Paua Abalone and comes complete with a Calton Deluxe Flight Case. The tone is spellbinding, it absorbs the player and inspires at every fret. It's very clear why Jeff Traugott is considered one of the very best makers in the world.
