Lame Horse Guitars: LH14

bodyback

We loved the old Jenkins we had in previously and jumped at the chance of having another one from Chris; now under the Lame Horse Instruments Banner.

We chose to go with an LH 14 model for full powered mid-sized guitar, and paired with Engleman / Flamed Tiger Myrtle combo… $8000

Specss:

scale length 25 inches, 14 frets to the body

rear removable access panel

back and sides – Tasmanian Tiger Myrtle
neck -15 piece sinker mahogany

purfling on headplate and fingerboard – abalone
side braces – sinker mahogany with inlay of reconstituted stone
inlay on access panel, truss rod cover, rosette – abalone and reconstituted stone
faux crocodile hard shell case

The guitar is very balanced string to string. It has a very complicated, sweet sound when played fingerstyle with lots of overtones and sympathetic tones; giving a 3 dimensional quality to the sound. However, it has good headroom and responds well to being strummed. The instrument has very good dynamic range.
