Smitty Custom Model 4, Sage Green Sparkle
Smitty Custom Guitars build quality, tone and attention to detail is amazing.
This guitar is really beautiful, with a flame maple neck, Smitty's awesome pickups, which are so good that we've also had customers wanting to buy the pickups for their other brand guitars. This actual guitar has also a light resonant poplar body and the usual, brilliant ageing.
Super quality guitars built by Eric Smid in the Netherlands, using premium tonewoods and a mix of modern technology and old school craftsmanship. They are serious guitars and we are very proud to be stocking them at NordSound!

- GUITARIST MAGAZINE SAID;
"Okay, so there’s no shortage of builders that will make you a fabulous guitar for around 3000€...all we can say is that not all of them have quite the sonic vision or guitar-playing experience as of Eric Smid. You really should experience these guitars!"
