Silk-smooth playability and velvet in the voice make for a fine instrument. Our 2017 Artisan from Tony Vines fits that bill to a T. Tony’s chops as a player have molded his guitar designs from day one, and this particular model is tuned to the fingerstylist’s frequency with crisp note separation and a slim neck carve for deft left hand work. The mousse-dark set of Malaysian Blackwood for the back and sides with black inking catches the eye, and Tony paired that with a creamy Carpathian Spruce top and Bocote appointments for a soft study of dark and light. Bound soundport in the upper bout for a little boost for the player’s ear, and gold EVO frets for longevity.

This Vines Artisan is practically new, already smooth and articulate and colored by soft overtones in the upper register. A dyed-in-the-wool fingerstyle guitar.
