Stock Clearance : Stanford CR Marquee Classic Amber
Stock Clearance ! From € 899,- now only € 799,- !!
The Stanford CR Marquee is the latest addition to Stanfords Crossroad series. A tried and true single cut design, but not just another copy, as it has some unique design features. With it's non-carved maple top and beautiful lightweight mahogany back and neck, stunningly executed neckjoint (reminds me of Nik Huber guitars), and overall outstanding fit and finish, Stanford has nailed it again with the Marquee.
The guitar is incredibly light and resonant, this is due to the special design where the center of the 3 piece body acts like a sustainblock while the wings are fitted with resonance chambers. Stanford aims to keep the weight at around 2.5 to 2,75 kg, but the main factor for this design is to enhance resonance and dynamics! The specialy designed Stanford PAF pickups really compliment the guitar and bring out it's full potential. The sound is balanced, warm yet sprakly, and the guitar is just amazingly dynamic which the pickups translate incredibly well. Another thing worth mentioning is the solid maple top is made of wood that's sourced in Bosnia where due to the cold climate the maple trees grow slow, which results in a dense and stiff wood of amazing quality. Many high-end violin makers are known to source their wood there too.
I'm a big fan of Stanford guitars, because they put out such great guitars at a working musicians pricepoint. Dear Wood is official Stanford dealer, and we have several models in stock, so come over and give them a try!
