The VE2000DLX Gordon Giltrap Signature Deluxe, is arguably the pinnacle model of this incredible series of extremely popular Gordon Giltrap electro-acoustic guitars. Designed by Gordon himself with Rob Armstrong, one of the UK’s longstanding acoustic guitar luthiers, all models in the series have the same distinctive body dimensions.
Whilst extremely attractive to the eye, the slender waist, curvaceous top and lower body bouts are constructed from the finest tonewoods to deliver and project a warm, tight, rich bass, underpinning a bright powerful midrange and sweet highs.
Intricate chord shapes and passages delivered at lightning speed are all but just one of this incredible guitar player’s fretboard skills. Hence, the classic solid spruce soundboard and mahogany body construction is the perfect choice, for a lightweight acoustic guitar that has been designed to effortlessly deliver fast note transmission, with exceptional clarity.
The addition of an ebony bridge, GraphTech compensated NuBone saddle and Nubone nut, contribute to a long throw that can be heard at the back off the hall. With a notable generous dynamic projection and sustain, the VE2000DLX Gordon Giltrap Signature Deluxe electro-acoustic guitar is also quick to respond to all manner of playing styles and techniques.
The mahogany neck, like the back, sides and soundboard has an expertly applied satin finish, beautiful to the touch and, with the natural high lustre of the fingerboard is a joy to play, while the Fishman Rare Earth Blend soundhole pickup delivers superb tonality of the guitar’s natural tonewood characteristics uncoloured, to external sources such as mixing desks, amps, monitors or PA systems.
Indeed, VE2000DLX Gordon Giltrap Signature Deluxe electro-acoustic guitar, plays and sounds incredible, but if there ever exists time when you actually have to put down this gorgeous model, sit back and admire the beautiful contrasting body bindings, detailed stripe inlay running central through the back of the body, intricate inlaid abalone soundhole rosette, inlaid Giltrap initials at the 12th fret and smooth-geared, gold plated Grover machine heads.
Then, and only then can it be safely stored within the included Kinsman 'Gordon Giltrap Signature' padded hardshell case….but not for long.
