Beneteau Model M Carpathian/
We will start by saying this was Dustin Furlow’s main studio/performance guitar for a few years and was used on the EP “Solo” (tracks: “Evergreen”, “Once More With Feeling”, and “Irene”) and it’s likely you can find a number of other recordings of it online. In Dustin’s words “It was the first Beneteau I’d owned and since then have commissioned two from him. Marc’s neck profile is the best I’ve come across and the clear response in the trebles and mids with cello-like bass are just a few of the things that make his guitars perfect for modern fingerstyle and singer/songwriter material alike”. This one has a 16″ lower bout with tight-grained Carpathian spruce making it a powerhouse of a guitar that also responds clearly to the softest touch. Though the lower bout width is a hair wider than the average concert model, the body depth is only 4.25″. Combine that with the tight waist and arm bevel and you have a guitar you can play for hours without getting strained. The Ebony is bold-sounding in the low end with extremely clear trebles, making it akin to characteristics found in rosewood guitars. Includes a K&K Trinity UST/Microphone combo so you’re all set for the stage as well!
