CR Guitars Collection Model – Concerto Signature 15 inches Acoustic Archtop

$18,450.00

”This latest Rancourt is now the official CR Guitars Signature model. Guillaume was kind enough to accommodate all the nuances I requested and to meld them altogether in a remarkable archtop guitar. From the custom pickup system to the unique cutaway; from the stellar headstock design to the superb neck profile, everything was given microscopic care and unrelenting attention to detail. Check out where the controls knobs are located. Like on my John Monteleone archtop they are placed in the tailpiece, out of the player’s way. Most importantly, the location has enough space to accommodate the highest quality electronic components. Small thing, maybe, but a large thing when it comes to tone. And tone is what this guitar is about. The custom magnetic pickup along with the K&K piezo bring the amplified sonic territory to a whole other level. Top that off with a side sound port, so you the player can experience an almost 3 dimensional aural playing experience.

    Craig Snyder Talks about the maker and the instrument:

    ”Though this guitar appears to have a traditional archtop esthetic, it really breaks the bounds of those constraints. It is very light in weight with a rich modern acoustic tone that would satisfy every facet of acoustic guitar styles. And any acoustic guitar player. With its fast and light to the touch action, this guitar has the unusual capability of traveling from Al Dimeola’s fleet fingers to Ry Cooder’s deep soul. How does it accomplish this? Rancourt’s bracing pattern and inner workings are quite revolutionary, and are based on scientific discoveries that inspire this builder.”
