The Ellastone

The Ellastone Guitar

Our most popular design, which has a unique body shape, designed to produce the power and projection of a Dreadnought sized guitar, but with much greater clarity and a delicacy of sound not normally associated with larger guitars, without sacrificing the ability to drive hard when placed in a group situation. This makes it a very versatile instrument and capable of fulfilling a wide variety of roles. It will also handle a wide variety of alternative tunings without complaint, making it ideal for Celtic and other styles of music where non-standard tunings abound.

It has a Spruce sound board on Rosewood back and sides. The body is bound in natural wood, with a Boxwood or Maple line and has black/white/black purfling on the. The soundhole rosette is Abalone with black/white/black concentric rings.

The Cedar or Mahogany neck has an Ebony fingerboard with 20 wide oval frets and is bound with Ebony, the scale length being 25" .There are mother-of-pearl dot markers both on the face and sides of the neck.

The head stock has an ornamental hardwood facing, with the Northworthy logo in Abalone, and is scarfe jointed to the neck for extra strength. The fingerboard nut is Bone, and the tuning machines are high quality enclosed types, Gold plated.

The bridge is Rosewood, has a compensated Bone saddle and Brass bridge pins, and is machined ready to accept a standard under saddle Piezo transducer.

Please note that due to the uncertainty of materials supply and cost, it may be necessary to alter some cosmetic items. It is also our policy to continually develop our instruments, and to use the best materials available at the time, so variations in specification do occur, though any significant changes are discussed with our customers prior to building.
