Stoll Guitars / Evidence / 2020 / Guitar For Sale
What do you get when you combine the tried and tested sound characteristics of the STOLL Ambition series with the furious features of the STOLL IQ? EVIDENCE, the mini jumbo high performance machine for guitar nerds, overwhelming sound, ergonomically easy to handle, versatile for any genre and 100% accurate intonation due to fanned frets.
The all-rounder for ambitious guitarists and maniacs to-be, stands out due to its domed top, Spanish constructed neck and balanced bracing system paired with moderately fanned frets, cutaway, pleasant body shape and aesthetic design. Whether modern fingerstyle, new age or blues, EVIDENCE can cope with everything.
... and you can cope with her, because she is both flexible and compliant, but also wild - if you wish. Whether delicate arpeggios, powerful strumming or sophisticated fingerpicking, she shows what you've got because she gives what she's got.
Material and Concept
The design of EVIDENCE is kept asymmetrical in accordance to the fanned frets. Large thorn inlays (by the way absolutely harmless) over the whole fretboard with double thorn at 12th fret, colour-matched to the respective wood selection of back and sides characterise this beauty. The rosette is also matching. A four-fifth circle of back-and-sides-wood separated by two-coloured frames gives the EVIDENCE style and class. The bridge pins with abalone or brass inserts go well with this.
The stylish head is adorned with Gotoh 510Opens in a new window closed single machine heads and the obligatory "S" of course.
EVIDENCE is currently available with Amaranth or Rosewood back and sides and Sitka Spruce top. We are happy to build for you with other woods and are curious about your special wishes.
Sound and handling
Not only in design, but also in sound, EVIDENCE is the "missing link" between ambition and IQ. Impressively the precision of tone generation is paired with the warm and rich rounded sound characteristics of Ambition, thus making it so versatile.
The handling is incredibly ergonomic thanks to the lightly fanned fretboard (638/662 mm in comparison to IQ 640/680 mm) which requires absolutely no time to familiarise. The string action is flat and comfortable as always and the neck contour allows for extremely relaxed playing. The mini-jumbo shape is easy to handle and fits snugly in your lap.

Stoll Guitars, Germany
Handicraft - Made in Germany
We value clean and high quality handicraft and selected materials. Thereby we pursue the concept of quality "Made in Germany". All of our guitars are made of solid tonewood. Before processing these valuable tonewoods we keep them in our workshop for years to dry slowly, as it is best for their determination.
Our bindings are made of wood, nut and bridge are made of bone and dots and inlays are of mother of pearl.Small SeriesOur guitars (standard models) are built in small series of maximum 4 pieces. In this way, we save time and can still control the technical quality of our work. and keep the technical quality of our work fully under control. we combine time-saving work with the best possible view of the technical quality of our work.
Quality From the Start
Even with our entry-level models, we set high standards of quality. Good sound, good workmanship and solid tonewoods here are also a must, as in the upper price ranges.
Most of our woods we buy directly in the country of origin. We also dispense with expensive glossy brochures. The benefits we grant to you.
Enjoyment of Work
Only those who have pleasure in their work, do it good and conscientious. Therefore, all our employees, including the trainees, have their own field of responsibility, which is regularly reviewed and is growing with the acquired skills. By doing this we constantly give new challenges which makes work interesting and varied. This applies also to our
Concept of Education
From the very first day we confront our apprentices with the real life of a luthier. Instead of sweeping the workshop they learn to build guitars from the start. Firstly with a lot of support and control, over time more independently they build our entry-level models Primera and PT59. By this concept we are able to offer entry-level guitars in the classical section under and in the steel string section slightly above 1,000 Euros.In advanced level of training, the apprentices are then successively introduced to the premium quality guitars. Accordingly the availability of Primera and PT59 is reduced. Economically, Environmentally, Politically Correct.
For a handmade guitar from a local luthier you invest 100% of your money in the quality of the instrument, while the price of guitars from overseas is more than 50% of costs for transportation and middlemen. Short transport routes and the production under European environmental standards is environmentally friendly and reduces carbon emissions. By investing in a local quality product you will not only add value by over 100% but help to maintain our quality of life.
