This has been a much awaited build! This Keystone Modified Dreadnought has the most perfect African Blackwood we have ever seen! Check out the incredible detailing such as the sapwood rosette, and the headstock too with the alternating purfling line.

The sound is incredible with the raw power and depth of a dreadnought but with the clarity and balance of a smaller guitar. The African Blackwood imparts a really deep and dark sound with lots of reverb and sustain. Just an outstanding guitar all around!

Keisuke Nishi builds some of the finest guitars we have ever played and we can NOT wait to bring this to you. If you have never played a Keystone before, put it on your to-do list and make an appointment with us today.
