Another video from my life-affirming trip to Hawaii this year. I have lied Steve Grimes’ Jazz Laureate design since I played Steve’s contribution to The Blue Guitar Collection.
This is a very modern and forward thinking archchtop - a lot more friendly to the finger style acoustic plays than other examples of the breed.
This particular guitar is fascinating due to Steve’s use of Hawaiian Koa on the back and sides rather than the traditional maple. It has a gorgeous sound - like all Steve’s guitars - and it was an absolute pleasure to play!
I hope you enjoy the video
Until next time, stay tuned!
