GUITARS CONSTRUCTION

Robson Acoustic Guitars feature traditional 6 string flat-tops in four standard styles, Dred, Jumbo (or 0000) and Small Body (000 or OM style) and Parlor Body (0-Style). Additional “00-14fret” and “J35” style available soon. The focus is on sound and playability; I strive to build a balanced sound across Highs, Mids, and Lows with punch on the bass and a full range response. Much effort is afforded the finishing and set-up, great action and feel … aim is for the guitar to draw in the player to not put it down! I build with various Mahogany, Rosewoods, Maple, and Exotics such as Brazilian, Cocobolo, Dark Myrtle, Pau Ferro (Bolivian Rosewood), Chechen and others as available.
Tops are spruce, Red Spruce (Adi) or Sitka typical, also use Engelmann, Lutz and Carpathian.
