The Goldfinch is the brainchild of long-time DeMont friend and artist, Philip Smith of New Jersey. The vintage inspired design will not give you the feel or sound of any standard Fender or Gibson. Following the lead of some of the most famous Chicago-based guitar manufacturers of the past, with two microphonic gold-foil pickups that re-produce every nuance of your playing, and a slightly wider solid-bone nut than standard, this guitar will bring you back to the blues rock days of the the 60's.
The entire body and neck are made from locally (Illinois) milled lumber and include species not always deemed standard in the guitar world. Necks are Maple with walnut fretboards and maple inlays. Made in the USA, this is one of the most affordable nationally made guitars with the most hands-on craftsmanship. 25.5" scale with all American made bolt on neck.
