New Mahogany Guitar Models Introduced

You would be forgiven for thinking you had just walked into Ron Burgundy’s apartment if you had these new Rich Mahogany guitar models in your home. For 2013, Crafter have introduced three new models to the Crafter lineup in the increasingly popular Mahogany finish.

Two models in the MAHO TOP range include the D8 MH/BR and GAE8 MH/BR, these are Dreadnought and Grand Auditorium (Electro) models in a gloss finish with scratchplates. Satin finish guitars in the range are still available without the scratchplates. The new LITE Cast range also includes a new Mahogany cutaway model with the Acorn VTA PreAmp and Cable Pickup, to complete the series.

As well as the new Mahogany models, a new addition to the 9 Series in Maple has been added in the form of the D9 (Dreadnought) which compliments the existing T/TE9 (Orchestra) and GAE9 (Grand Auditorium) models in the range. All of these guitars feature solid Engelmann Spruce tops with vintage Maple backs and sides.

NAMM is only around the corner and Crafter are expected to release a brand new Anniversary model plus a couple of new guitars at the show at Anaheim in California, USA.

Crafter TE9 iGuitar Review

Brand new for 2013 from the NAMM show in California, the Crafter TE9 MP has been shipped to the UK and straight to iGuitar for review. It’s so new that we haven’t received a full shipment yet but they are due at the end of summer. Something for your Christmas list! The Crafter TE9 is a grand auditorium guitar with a solid Engelmann spruce top and maple back and sides. Delightfully light in tone and weight but with a punchy sound. Features the new LR-T NX PreAmp with L.R. Baggs Pickup and inbuilt LCD Tuner for tuning on the go. Rick Graham gives his verdict on iGuitar with a stunning 4.5/5 stars. We can’t wait to see more of them on UK shores! Click here for review.
“A great sounding guitar with a good quality onboard pre-amp and low price point. Well made and looks fantastic to boot. Even if you have budgeted for a more expensive instrument, I’d suggest you make a point of checking out the TE9 – you might be in for a very pleasant surprise!” – Rick Graham
