Price: $3,398 US MSRP / Series: Acoustic 5

Our small-body GC guitars are intimate and curvy, yet with volume that belies their size. The slotted peghead and short-scale (24 7/8-inch) neck deliver a more “woody” tone and an unbelievably easy feel on the fretboard. The mahogany/cedar GC5 is a fingerstyle dream.

This model has been discontinued.
