This is our first instrument from Scottish luthier Pete Beer and we are quite impressed! The workmanship is beautiful, with clean lines, gorgeous bear claw, and a nice wheat motif in the rosette and on the bridge. The guitar has a seductively warm, spruce tone that sings with even tones up the entire neck and provides an excellent range of dynamics. Beer is devoted to the traditional methods in his building, working with  hand tools, hide glue, french polish, and he even splits his braces rather than sawing them to size.

“This process, much like splitting kindling, allows the long fibres of the spruce to lie parallel to the length of the brace, making it far stronger.”

-Pete Beer

And the best part about this guitar...it comes in under $7,000!
