CRAFTED IN APPLETON, WI
Cory Arndt is the Luthier and Owner of Ardent Guitars. Each guitar he creates is meticulously handcrafted using high-quality woods, offering customizable options to craft a distinctive and personalized instrument that adheres to the highest quality standards. Specializing in modified classic shapes, Cory endeavors to produce unique instruments that endure the passage of time.
This stunning guitar is a reimagined version of the classic 000 body shape, with Ardent Guitar's signature asymetrical heel joint and beautiful semi-gloss finish. The torrefied Sitka Spruce top is married perfectly with Honduran Mahoganey for a wonderfully responsive instrument that rings equally well with fingerstyle or flatpick technique.
The understated cosmetics are subtley enhanced with a sophisticated blue accent inlay of dyed maple on the headstock, rosette, and binding. Unbleached bone is used for the nut and saddle.
A molded SKB case is included.
