You don't have to spend much time wandering about the nooks and crannies of this Shoreline Music website to discover that we really love Northwood guitars. We've been selling Mini-Jumbos and OMs for more than 15 years, and many, many of these have found happy homes.
But a recent custom order for one of John's deep-bodied 000 models really opened my ears—it had all the stuff I love about Northwoods: Rich sustain, note clarity, depth, projection, they're all there, but in an eminently playable short-scale package. So, of course, I had to start ordering more. The rosewood in this particular guitar gives it the expected lushness, and the 70-series trim (mostly just no abalone on the soundboard) saves a couple hundred bucks compared to the standard R80. This is a sweet guitar, and you're going to love it.
