Hook / Hooklet Sinker Redwood / 2019 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Hook Guitars are currently only built to order in Bangor, Northern Ireland, and the waiting list is getting longer. Every guitar is built by hand, to every individual customer’s specifications, using some of the finest materials available. This example is the small body model called the Hooklet, which is slightly smaller than a 00 body size. What drew me to the guitar is the Sinker Redwood top, which is a highly prized tone wood, and also very beautiful looking. The soundboards are sliced from huge old-growth redwood logs reclaimed from the depths of Northern California rivers, where they’ve lain in many cases for more than a century. It has a fairly bold response, with a brilliance complemented by warm overtones which has been described as cedar on steroids. The guitar is paired with Rosewood back and sides adding clarity and attack to the overall tone, making it deceptively powerful for it’s size. Finished off with an Ebony fingerboard and bridge, Gotoh tuners, and beautiful Abalone inlays, the guitar looks really striking. It’s probably at it’s best being fingerpicked, with great single note presence, and a full sustain. But it has the power to handle strumming surprisingly well, with a warmth and richness that allows the guitar to handle all playing styles. The guitar comes comes in a non original hard case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
