Denny Jiosa Signature Model
The FX-PF007 is a grand auditorium sized guitar with a solid book matched Bolivian Rosewood top and book matched Bolivian Rosewood back and sides. The bevel armrest adds comfort while playing. This model also includes the FXT electronics with built in delay, chorus and reverb. Boliivian Rosewood grain is tighter than a typical rosewood specimen, and it is thought to have a more distinctly percussive tone. Its tonal response has tight lows, present mids and a clear, singing high end response. It has a rosewood fretboard and bridge, plus a bone nut and saddle for added tone. The custom gold die-cast tuning machines complete this guitar with a very unique combination of exotic top and back woods. All Willow Creek Guitars ship with D'Addario coated strings.
We are excited to have Denny Jiosa as part of our team. Denny is recognized and respected worldwide as one of the most dynamic and soulful guitarists on the scene today.
