This item is NOW ON SALE!

#4996, with a Master Grade Adirondack top, AAA mahogany sides and back, original hard shell case.


 We would call this "excellent or even excellent plus" condition, showing only small signs of having been played—a few scuffs, a few small scratches - having a low comfortable action in every fret position.  


Here we are again, with another exceptional James Goodall in our hands, the stately Goodall dreadnought-inspired “Traditional” (James is never one to conform to conventional nomenclature).   His instruments are somehow more curvy, more sweeping than that of the regular makers -- in the manner of comparing a ballet dancer to, say, a toll taker (not that there’s anything wrong with being a toll taker, you just don’t expect to be handed your change by Rudolf Nureyev). His guitars are true poultry in motion, winsome on the wing.   This guitar sounds so incredibly wonderful that playing it makes us want to own the darn thing.


It commands the full breadth of the six-string-based audio spectrum – it conveys open airy woodiness, the sound of the breeze, high over the precipice as it passes you, when standing on the apogee of the Skywalk at Grand Canyon West. It has power, but it has precision, poise and polish. We should say it also brings one pleasure and peace in a way that pieces of peripheral profundity cannot.  Individual notes hang in the air in the room in which the guitar was played 20 minutes ago. It doesn’t hurt that it is also beautiful beyond measure with its natural white maple wood body and headstock bindings, repeating “arrowhead” pattern multi-colored marquetry backstripe, ivoroid-buttoned “Waverly” brand, one-of-the-best-you-can-get tuners; a black polished ebony headplate with the abalone and pearl flying “G,” bone saddle and nut, wide-grained Adirondack top offset by a herringbone rosette with wooden purfling lines, low profile one-piece mahogany neck with its 1 ¾” nut, and its generous and comfortable 2 ¼” bridge spacing.  The teardrop pickguard is variegated in the prewar style.   The bridge pins are, we believe, boxwood.   This particular example is equipped with an L. R. Baggs internal pickup with volume and tone controls on an ivoroid semi-circle in the soundhole.  A nickel-plated strap button has been provided post-market in the correct place on the treble side of the neck heel. 


As they say on the Big Island, “When you’re in the mood-all, you must try a Goodall.” We’ll see you at the Beloved Mandofarm at mid-day, then. With this superb guitar your acoustic legacy will never be the same.    THIS WAS PRICED AT $5356 BUT NOW ON SALE FOR:
