Greg is not only a great person, but he builds great guitars. Originally inspired by Romanillos to coax the ‘magic’ out of a guitar, he evolved into the modern iteration of guitars with his lattice braced guitars and has been in steady demand ever since.

Gregs guitars are lovingly voiced, powerful, easy to play and due to Greg’s intense focus on this aspect, always have perfect intonation.

For this guitar Greg went ‘all in’, a beautiful Spruce lattice braced top, elevated fingerboard not unlike that seen on Millennium guitars of Tom Humphrey, though Greg is quick to note he never copied the Millennium design, but came to his own conclusions about how to address access in the upper registers and ended up with a similar solution, Rodgers tuners, an upgraded Hoffee case, and best of all, Brazilian Rosewood back and sides.

The result is the quintessential Spruce Byers, warm and ‘woody’ sounding with clarity and focus and plenty of power, a modern Spruce guitar lovers dream in essentially new condition.
