Portland Guitar builds to have superior response and sustain. This guitar produces a big sound with hefty bass, clear mids and glassy highs. The patent pending ultralight body system enhances the tone of the curly maple and Sitka Spruce woods. The bear claw spruce is excellent to dig into and has a clear tone no matter how hard it’s played.
The luthier is a mechanical engineer that has crafted many innovations into his creation. Many guitars in one, play a different style every day. Sometimes it’s good to strum hard and other times it’s nice to lightly pick. Use either of these styles by changing the action with the adjustable cantilever neck. Easily accessible from the heel of the neck use the provided allen wrench and perform a neck reset in seconds.
