Lots of people are looking for smaller guitars these days - "couch cuddlers" and "sofa sweethearts" - instruments considerably more ergonomic than the dreadnoughts and jumbos that so many of us grew up with. This friendly little guitar is one of the best values in the shop right now.

From Jamie Kinscherff's website:

My journey into the life of a guitarmaker was the result of a natural progression. I started playing guitar in 1967. Being the curious person I am it wasn't long before I was experimenting with pawnshop wrecks. I actually made my first guitars in 1978, an electric and a dreadnought. I found gainful employment at the then-fledgling Taylor Guitars and worked there for a couple of years. 


In the early eighties I moved back to my native Texas, repairing and building instruments in Dallas. Wanderlust struck in 1986 and I decided to go on a walkabout. After about a year and a half of adventures that included travel in Europe , N. Africa, India and Nepal, I returned to the US and again found work at Taylor. 

 By 1990 I was ready to move back to Texas, this time the capital, Austin. It was there that I made the first acoustic guitars under the Kinscherff name, and designed the models I now offer. 

Addie the dog and I moved to the country in spring of 1999. I live on a beautiful ranch in the Texas hill country along side the Blanco River. Kinscherff Guitars is a one man operation and these days I manage to build 18 to 20 guitars per year. 

My philosophy about lutherie is simple; Use the finest materials available and put into each instrument the engineering and craftsmanship that will result in excellent tone, playability and physical beauty.
