Sobell / Model O / 1989 / Natural / Guitar

Stunning 1989 Stefan Sobell Model O


This fine Sobel Model O was formerly owned by Alistair Russell of Battlefield Band. A joy to play, like all Sobells, it is a great sounding guitar that has opened up nicely from being played over the years. European Spruce over Indian Rosewood, with the distinctive Sobell cutaway and oval soundhole. These instruments truly deserve the reverence they are given by professional players around the world. A fine example of Sobell's work. Comes complete with a pickup and a Calton case that boasts many stickers from it's travels with Alistair Russell.
