The VE2000GG is another instrument in the incredible series of extremely popular Gordon Giltrap electro-acoustic guitars. Designed by Gordon himself with Rob Armstrong, one of the UK’s longstanding acoustic guitar luthiers, all models in the series have the same distinctive body dimensions.
In keeping with Gordon’s request for a lightweight, extremely vibrant guitar, high quality mahogany is the selected tonewood for the body and hand-picked, tight grained North American red cedar for the soundboard. This superb tonewood combination has been specifically selected by this very popular UK guitar virtuoso to project and separate fast note runs and intricate chord structures, a speciality and part of Gordon’s unique playing style
Whilst extremely attractive to the eye, the slender waist, curvaceous top and lower bouts are constructed from the finest tone woods to effortlessly deliver and project a warm, tight, rich bass, underpinning a bright powerful midrange and sweet highs, delivered with exceptional volume and clarity. The addition of a GraphTech compensated NuBone saddle and Nubone nut, contribute to a long throw that can be heard at the back off the hall. With a notable generous dynamic projection and sustain.
Aesthetics aside, the VE2000GG Gordon Giltrap Signature electro-acoustic guitar, is also quick to respond to all manner of playing styles and techniques, ideal for the first choice in the studio, playing live or simply enjoying this gorgeous guitar in any environment.
The mahogany neck, like the back, sides and soundboard has an expertly applied satin finish, beautiful to the touch and, with the natural high lustre of the fingerboard is a joy to play. The unobtrusive on-board FishmanPresys Preamp System with Volume, Bass, Mid and Treble controls, a Phase switch, and a built-in tuner with LED display, delivers the natural tonewood characteristics uncoloured, to external sources such as mixing desks, amps, monitors or PA systems.
Back to those gorgeous aesthetics. Smooth operating Gold plated Grover tuners, 12th fret abalone inlay, double-bound mahogany body with fine-line purfling, and matching soundhole rosette, all contribute to one of the most popular models in the Gordon Giltrap series of electro-acoustic guitars.
