It has taken three years of prayer and design work to bring to you our newest model:

the Soli Deo Gloria or SDG

which translated means "Glory to God alone". The body shape is a culmination of all of our body styles combined into one with the goal of creating the most versatile body design yet. It is super comfortable playing it finger style kicked back on the couch yet it is large enough to lead worship or authoritatively hold its own in any jam. Like any of our models its available with or without a cutaway.

  This is a fine example of the famous "TREE" Honduran Mahogany. This is the best sounding mahogany that I have ever built with. I was very skeptical of the history and lore of the tone wood until I heard this guitar sing and WOW was I surprised!
 
     
SDG with an optional offset sound hole. This moves the sound output closer to the player which does not require a side sound port. This model is available without a cutaway or with a Florentine cutaway as shown below. This image also shows the optional dual scale / multi scale / Fan Fret fingerboard. This one has a 25.5" scale on the bass side and a 24.9" scale on the treble side.   SDG with an optional offset sound hole.
