The Shari Ulrich Songbird Model 265B40
~ Espresso Black ~ BARITONE NECK

Created in the tradition of the finest 0 Body Tenor ever made, the Songbird Series is nothing but exquisite craftsmanship and the finest sound woods available today. The Limited 40 Series provides a neck that’s ideal for Fast fingering, wide hands, large or aging fingers and rapid cord progression. You’ll be thrilled by the qualities of the wide neck when playing slide.

The 265BW is carefully crafted to have the warm soft wood finish found only in guitars crafted nearly 100 years ago. Hand rubbed wood stains are eased into the solid Sitka Spruce and gracefully buffed to reveal the beautiful wood grain rather than washing it away and hiding it behind solid paint. The dark Espresso Black shows thin allowing warm rich browns to show through. This very unique process makes every 265BW unique yet consistently beautiful. Unlike reliced guitars made to look road worn, battered and beaten, the Espresso Black Songbird has the appearance of a treasured family heirloom passed among generations. Unlock the lush tweed hardshell case and inside awaits an O body Tenor guitar that’s part time traveler, part future family heirloom and 100% beautiful professional quality Songbird Tenor Guitar.

Hand selected aged solid Sitka Spruce adorns the top to present bright tones and resonate in a loud voice that’s clear without being shrill. The hand picked solid Mahogany back reverberates in warm rich tones that can only be achieved by the finest of guitars. The beauty of the woods are embellished with abalone binding. Combined together, the Songbird is ideal for the writer, entertainer or novice player who values heirloom quality over mass produced commodity guitars.

Along with the beautiful construction lies our truss rod neck assuring longevity and play ability for the years ahead and when the lights go on and you walk on stage, our onboard CRAVEN XLR8 equalizer is there, ready for you to dial in the sound you richly deserve.

Your Shari Ulrich Songbird is protected in its embroidered, lush lined hardshell case for safe transport and lifelong protection of your investment.
