What we say:
Finlayson guitars is a new and exciting range of superb acoustic guitars, designed in collaboration with esteemed luthier Billy Finlayson and industry titan Robert Godin of Godin guitars.
This range of guitars, designed in Scotland and handcrafted in La Patrie, Canada, is a WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Godin do not make guitars for anybody else so this unique collaboration is unprecedented and extremely special.
Part of the reason that Finlayson guitars sound so good is the use of Adirondack Spruce for the inner bracing. Bracing forms and shapes much of the guitar’s voice & projection so using Adirondack Spruce, which is the strongest and lightest species of Spruce, is a massively important part of the process.
The Finlayson guitars range has been a long time in the making: exhaustive efforts have been made to ensure that playability, sound quality, beauty and value have all been met to a stringently high standard. Every guitarist looking for a quality electro acoustic needs to try out this incredible new range: Finlayson guitars set the standard.
The Parlour sized 00-50ME is an excellent addition to the Finlayson family of guitars. Spruce and Mahogany are the solid timbers involved here and they add both a warm directness and a top end sparkle to the 00-ME’s surprisingly loud sound. Projection is impressive, assisted ably by the internal bracing.
The 00-50ME is an excellent choice for guitarists who appreciate great fingerpicked tones: this guitar encourages lots of plectrum-free sonic exploration and is very rewarding in that respect.
The finish is a lovely and traditional looking Sunburst, amply adding to the previously mentioned herringbone purling to present a rich looking heritage-style aesthetic. This is as beautiful a guitar to look at as it is to play.
Guitars who predominantly play in fingerstyle genres will be instantly at home with the Finlayson 00-50ME.
