The handmade C9 is one of the staple models in the Luthier series, and is now available with a slimmer neck! The C9 Crossover features a 48mm nut width, radiused fingerboard, and hand-carved mahogany neck with a thinner profile- perfect for the guitarist who loves the sound and look of the traditional C9, but prefers the feel of a steel string or electric guitar. It features either a solid Canadian cedar or solid spruce top with solid mahogany back and sides for a sweet, warm tone. Like all models in the Luthier Series, the C9 Crossover offers the vintage elegance of a hand-inlaid mother-of-pearl rosette inspired by a 1920s Domingo Esteso design. Other notable features of the C9 Crossover include its silver tuning machines, and adjustable truss rod. Includes a Cordoba polyfoam case.
Available with a traditional neck profile (C9) or with a parlor-style body shape (C9 Parlor).
