The Gigster is a Bristlecone model set up for stage use and built with the working musician in mind. Stable East Indian Rosewood is paired with European Spruce for a clear, balanced tone that amplifies and records beautifully. A Manzer Wedge, fingerboard markers, strap pegs, and a K&K PowerMix pickup complete the package.

This guitar has slightly wider than standard string spacings and a roomy fingerboard, making it especially well suited for fingerstyle players.
