Beneteau ‘M’ Model Cutaway Engelmann/EIR #290614 – Used

$ 4750.00

A customized ‘M’ Model with an Engelmann Spruce top and East Indian Rosewood back and sides.

Condition Used, Very Good (some finish damage in the area of the volute where the neck has been repaired)

This customized ‘M’ Model is an ideal fingerstyle instrument for the discerning player. With a Venetian cutaway and Laskin-style arm bevel, the ergonomic design allows the player effortless access to the higher register while reducing right hand and arm fatigue in exquisite style. The tone is rich and warm; notes bloom powerfully and sustain with excellent separation and clarity.

SP Luthier Notes: Neck crack repair and setup

The best way to describe my “M” model is to say that it is the same shape as my 0M but enlarged to a full 16″ width giving it an expanded bass response. Like the Mini Jumbo and Concert Standard, this model offers another choice in a full sized guitar suitable for fingerstyle playing or full strumming. I’m also offering the “M” as an alternate Baritone choice for those players who find the 17″ Jumbo body a bit too large.
