With a career that career that spans nearly 40 years, Jim Triggs is without a doubt one of the most experienced and talented American luthiers. His many notable achievements include overseeing Gibson's custom shop in 1980s, having his instruments displayed at the Smithsonian Institute, and supplying instruments to long list of stars including Pat Martino, Jimmy Buffet, Ranger Doug, Steve Miller, etc.

This rare, short scale Gypsy model features solid maple back and sides, a spruce top, and a mahogany neck. Hardware includes a Saga tailpiece, Waverly three-on-a-plate tuners, and strap buttons which have been installed in the heel and endpin. Unlike many Gypsy guitars, the truss rod is accessed through the headstock rather than through the soundhole. The bridge was built in the original Maccaferri style, with no feet so that the entire bridge rests on the top. There is currently a small shim under the bridge.

The condition is very good, with some mild fret wear, significant pick wear on the top, and some small dings and scratches. This guitar plays very easily and sounds clean with astonishingly low 2.2mm action. This low action, along with the short scale, make this instrument one of the easiest playing guitars in the shop.

This guitar has a warm, rounded tone with soft, yet simple sounding highs and a nice fullness in the lower midrange. It projects nicely but is not overly aggressive or harsh, making it an excellent all around guitar for lead, rhythm, or even unaccompanied solo playing.

It's rare we have quality handmade Gypsy guitars of any kind in this price range, no to mention ones built by luthiers with the experience and reputation of Jim Triggs. Treat yourself to a prestigious guitar at a players price!
