Crafter have been building amazing guitars from their workshop in South Korea since 1972.
The Crafter CR-SA-QMOS is a magnificent looking guitar featuring a stunning quilted arched Maple top and matching headstock veneer finished in Orange Sunburst. The body is made from Alstonia, also known as Devil Wood.
The image below is of our actual guitar – the photo simply doesn’t do it justice.
The bound neck features a mahogany dovetail joint with an Indian Rosewood fret board. The SA also has twin “split S” soundholes. The look is a classy blend of contemporary and classic styling.
The Crafter SA is surprisingly a true hybrid guitar. Equipped with a Kent Armstrong lipstick pickup in the neck position and an LR Baggs Element piezo sensor under the bridge, they can be blended via a fader on the preamp control panel. LR Baggs are one of the world’s leading acoustic instrument pickup manufacturers and the LR-F preamp offers excellent control over volume, bass, mid and treble frequencies. A phase switch button is also included to help with eliminating feedback.
Kent Armstrong is the son of Dan Armstrong, one of the world’s innovators of electric instrument pickups. Kent is no slouch when it comes to designing and making pickups and this pickup sounds great. This is a versatile guitar and perfect for Country, Blues, Folk and Roots, Indie and Jazz players.
Our guitar is brand new and comes complete with a PRO-SCM setup to optimise your playing experience.
A fitted Crafter Hard Case is also included.
