Gordon Smith GS1 With Thick Korina Body and Neck - Handmade by traditional means in Higham Ferrers, Northamptonshire, UK.

With a thick, double cutaway solid body, made of Korina, this guitar exhibits the unique colouration of this wood, as well as its great tonal properties and lighter weight. The neck, just as the body, is hand carved for immediate comfort, and features a thicker profile, though not too thick - 22mm at the nut and 24mm at the 12th fret. The Rosewood fingerboard is inlaid with dot markers, and the fretwork is simply superb, with a smooth polished feel when performing bends. A unique feature for Gordon Smith Guitars is they feature Hand Cut Brass Nuts. The are not only tough, but offer great tonal benefits, increasing brightness and sustain.

Single Humbucker Pickup with Coil Tap

The Gordon Smith GS1 Heritage in Natural features a Homewound Humbucker Pickup. Wound in-house they have been a feature of Gordon Smith guitars for decades, offering rich crunch, chiming cleans to soaring lead sounds, and these have also been improved with even better quality components and magnet materials. The GS1 Korina features simple but effective electronics, with a single volume control which doubles as a Push Pull coil tap, and a tone control for taming the highs, and mellowing the tone. The GS1 Heritage is finished in satin natural stain with black headstock cap. The neck is also finished in satin for a slick and silky smooth playing feel. The wraparound bridge bar features adjustable screws, which makes tweaking the intonation easy.

This guitar also comes complete in a Padded Gordon Smith Gig Bag, with full certification.
