The challenge: Make a larger guitar that maintains the melodic quality of a smaller instrument while adding the bass response associated with the Jumbo/Dreadnaught class.
Running Dog's Concert Jumbo has the sonority of larger instruments, a strong mid-range, and a pure, clear treble. Suited to fingerstyle as well as flatpicking, it is responsive and lively.
Gypsy Special: A modified Concert for a punchier, archtoppy sort of guitar. The Gypsy has volume and the fast rise of a great acoustic archtop, but the sustain and round tones of a flattop. All Gypsy Specials have German spruce soundboards, modified bracing, and a Venetian cutaway to obtain that swing era sound and appearance. The Gypsy can be set up for lights or mediums.
