Lovies Guitars is Excited to offer up this 1993 Foley Guitars Acoustic Cutaway Guitar Koa & Brazilian Rosewood! Great luthiers, like many talented craftsmen, spend their lives putting their hearts and souls into building great instruments, receiving little of the recognition that they deserve. This is particularly puzzling because Ed Foley has made guitars for the Legendary Father of Bluegrass Bill Monroe, Owner and Founder of Groove Tubes and G.T. Electronics Aspen Pittman and Country Music Star George Strait. Ed’s inspiration comes from the legendary Martin guitars of the 1930’s through early 1940’s; the Pre-War years. Picking up this guitar for the first time, its’ sheer beauty is enough to take your breath away! The abalone trimmed top, fingerboard and headstock with the abalone rosette reflect the countless hours that were spent inlaying handpicked slivers of abalone into a channel between the binding. Once these slivers of abalone are set into the channel, they are sanded and lacquered. Hitting the obligatory E chord for the first time is a revelation. There is a richness in tone that is reminiscent of a grand-piano. It sounds deep, yet very clear with excellent separation and superior sustain. You know from the very first chord that this is one special guitar made by a very talented builder. It is also a very sensitive guitar that responds well to a light touch. Crisp, warm, ringing and powerful tonal qualities are exhibited by this beautiful instrument. It delivers low-end boom when you want it as well as ringing, clear, bell-like highs. From it’s drop-dead good looks, tone that has to be heard to be believed and playability will make you want to keep playing it, Foley guitars are very special instruments. They inspire the player to try new and different things because it gives the player more than they expect a guitar to be able to deliver, making for a guitar that is a great partner for life. Great Shape with many tiny indents and light scuffs and marks all over, a couple finish checks below the bridge, 8.5/10. ALL Original. NO Breaks, Cracks or Repairs!
