Crossroads L-13 Custom Granadillo
Our Crossroads models are some of our favorites. We have a great respect for the old blues music coming straight out of the Delta in the early 20th century. These guitars feature the look and sound of the great old instruments favored by the masters of the genre. We have lightened the bracing and further shortened the scale to produce the woody, thumpy tone that makes the great blues music come to life.
Our newest model in the Crossroads series is a nod to the iconic jazz guitarist from the late '20's. As the first jazz guitarist to record as a soloist, his popularity during his lifetime came from his reputation as a singer as well as with his signature song, "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" in 1929.
This Custom version features a Sitka Spruce top paired with Granadillo (Mexican Rosewood) back and sides with a gorgeous all-over sunburst. The mahogany neck has a 1-3/4" vintage taper with gloss finish sporting an Indian Rosewood fretboard with the popular '27-style Lucas inlay. The peghead features the lovely fleur-de-lis inlay. A TKL hard-shell tweed case accompanies each one.
