Kauffmann ’56 T Myrtle Wood Limited Edition Used
In 2019 we build a Limited Edition Series T-Model. We came by an exceptionally beautiful but small supply of Myrtle wood. Just enough to build four guitars. This is no 3/4. It has an alder body with a Myrtle wood top. The guitars weighs 3120 grams. It is equipped with Kauffmann slightly overwound T model pickups. It has a 14″ radius maple fretboard on a full C-shaped neck. The guitar is aged gently and has nice crackle in the finish but no dents or deep scratches.

Kauffmann Guitars are build in the Netherlands. Kauffmann builds custom shop quality guitars at an affordable price level. All guitars have that vintage well worn in vibe. It is all about feel, looks and the sound.
Kauffmann aims for a weight between 3100 and 3500 grams. Most players experience that as a light guitar. The fingerboard has hand rolled edges and the neck has light or no lacquer on the back. And that is why they feel comfortable right at the first touch.
Guitars are finished in nitro cellulose lacquer in a variety of colors. Some are vintage correct guitar colors. Others are more experimental, without losing that vintage appeal. The aging level varies from very light to heavy. But it is never extreme. In this way each and every guitar is unique in it's own right.
Sound wise we aim for a bluesy warm tone. Using our own slightly overwound transparent Kauffmann pickups.
