Olav Loef Sylva 12 string High String Nashville

The Finnish luthier Olav Loef is the man behind this unique high strung 12 string Sylva, where tradition and innovation meet in a nice mix. Loef not only aims to create copies of instruments from the first decades of the last century but also brings his own interpretation and ideas into play.

Sylva is something as wonderful as a guitar you did not know you were missing until you get it in your arms. This beauty is a 12 string guitar with EAD and G not as octaves but paired in unison, like a mandolin. Some call it high strung some angel hair or Nashville tuning. The first thing you notice once you struck the strings of this guitar is a crystal clear note separation and the tone becomes brittle and mandolin-like, where simple chords get a sheer, floating ambient sound. This hand built remarkable creation has a V-shaped neck which meets the body at the 13th fret and the playability for the fingerpickers is pretty much like playing a normal 6 string guitar. The headstock is decorated with vintage and precis Grover tuners. Another eye-catching detail is the 6 end pin construction, where each pin holds a pair of unison strings....a little detail which actually makes string changing on this 12 string easier. The guitar is ladder braced and reminds you of old Stella or Washburn guitars. The long sustain and clear sound of this guitar places it's tonal quality somewhere between a mandolin, Irish Bouzouki and guitar...a dream for players who want to find a unique sound for folk music arrangements. Comes with Gator case.Mint condition
