Guitar Models

Lakestone’s concept is to take traditional designs and include real innovation to produce exceptionally beautiful instruments that play and sound as good as they look.

Each guitar is uniquely hand-made, with materials that are in sympathy with the design, making it possible to use woods that are sometimes a little out of the ordinary.

We offer three base models: the SL (Small Lakestone), OM (Orchestra Model) and JM (Jumbo Model), all with a wide range of custom options available.

The Lakestone SL

The essence of this design is the shape of a jumbo but with a small body size. We get a big bass response from OM and Jumbos, which we wanted to keep but in a smaller package. Hence the name, 'Small Lakestone'.

We have kept the body as deep as our jumbos to compensate for any bass loss, 105mm depth at neck joint to 125mm depth at the lower bout. Because the of the extra depth, we have included the bevel feature as standard on this model.

The bracing design, although inspired by other designs, is lakestone’s own design named the 'Sturgeon Bracing'.

As on all our models, the slimmer thickness of the neck and low action helps to give a very comfortable and faster play.

This model is quickly becoming our best selling guitar. A great all-round player; suited to both fingerpicking and strumming and with plenty of projection asnd volumn due to the extra depth. Balanced across all the different frequencies, a strong bass response without being boomy.

The Lakestone OM

This model is our take on the popular 'Orchestra Model', with a well balanced tone range and full projection.

It's a smaller bodied guitar but we give it the same depth of a jumbo, 105mm depth at neck joint to 125mm depth at the lower bout. This combination gives a well balanced range of tone and an increase in volume. The OM also offers a greater level of attack, making it especially shine when strumming.

All our guitar models feature our special necks; hand-carved from a 5-piece laminate of mahogany and rosewood, double action truss rod with 2 carbon fibre reinforcements either side, our necks create amazing sustain. We carve to achieve a slimmer thickness of the neck and set up with a low action. This gives a very comfortable and fast play. (It is optional for us to craft thicker and wider necks if requested.)

The bracing design, although inspired by other designs, is lakestone’s own design, named the 'Sturgeon Bracing'.

The Lakestone JM

The Jumbo Model has a body larger in all dimensions. With a wider and longer soundboard, this guitar has incredible resonance and an authoritative low end and singing treble.

The increased size of this model and the extra depth provides a fuller sound and great volume. These guitars are able to full a whole room with rich tone. Again, the bevel feature makes them very comfortable to play despite the extra size.

All our guitar models feature our special necks; hand-carved from a 5-piece laminate of mahogany and rosewood, double action truss rod with 2 carbon fibre reinforcements either side, our necks create amazing sustain. We carve to achieve a slimmer thickness of the neck and set up with a low action. This gives a very comfortable and fast play. (It is optional for us to craft thicker and wider necks if requested.)
