Savoy is the culmination of Blackbird's focus on compact instruments without compromise. With a big lush vintage tone—this acoustic is without equal for its size. This small body 'O' size acoustic is crafted of Ekoa® linen fiber and plant resin which is lighter and more resonant than conventional materials like Spruce. The one-piece design is lightweight, durable, and weather stable, so you can take your Savoy anywhere. Even with an amazing full size voice, playability and scale length, Savoy still fits in a ¾ soft case. As a 12-fret guitar, Savoy is both compact and places the bridge in the ‘sweet spot’ of the lower bout, while offering full fretboard access via the unique Blackbird ‘dual’ cutaway with the back sculpted away for access to the highest frets. Finally Savoy features Blackbird's proprietary hollow neck and head sound chamber.
Savoy includes: soft case, rosette, strap buttons, and pickguard (optional).
