1998 Park Encore with Bigtone Pickup ***New Price***
Shelley Park needs no introduction. Over the past decade she has earned a reputation as one of the top makers of Selmer style guitars. Her guitars are known for their impeccable workmanship, aesthetic beauty, and warm satisfying tone. This guitar is no exception.

The Modèle Encore features Selmer dimensions: 670mm scale, 15 3/4" lower bout, and a 3 7/8" body depth. The top is European spruce. The back and sides are made of highly figured, solid Brazilian rosewood. Additionally, the neck is also made entirely of solid Brazilian rosewood, just like 800 series Selmers. All this high quality wood amounts to one fine looking instrument!

The tone of this instrument is very open and alive, with a sonic complexity that only high quality Brazilian rosewood can produce. Chords are rich, with thick mids while lead lines are bathed in a shower of interesting overtones. The sound is confident and mature, undoubitly a result of a decade of regular use. One of the nicest sounding Parks I've come across.

I should also mention that this guitar is extraordinarily easy to play. It is currently set at 2.5mm action and has the ultra-smooth playability of an archtop.

The condition is very good, with some light signs of wear. Mostly just small dings and scratches on the top and body. The frets are brand new.

This is the CASH price...add 3% if you'd like to pay with a credit card. 4% for International orders.
