Savoy is the culmination of Blackbird's focus on making compact instruments with big voices and with its lush vintage tone, this acoustic is without equal for its size. The small body 'O' size acoustic is crafted of 'lighter-than-spruce Ekoa® linen fiber composite. The one-piece body is lightweight, durable, and weather stable, so you can take your Savoy anywhere. With a full size voice, playability and scale length, it still fits in the included ¾ soft case. As a 12-fret guitar, Savoy is both compact and places the bridge in the ‘sweet spot’ of the lower bout but also offers you full fretboard access via the unique Blackbird ‘dual’ cutaway— the back is 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).
