Datlen Luthiery

Hand-Crafted and Built in the Napa Valley

The Single-o

 

The Single-O shape was inspired by a mentor of mine, Bruce Sexauer.  It has incredible volume and projection, with the clarity you'd expect from a small bodied guitar.  It has surprising bass response and all the complexity of my larger models.
