Turner 55CE

  • Awaitingmain

Since the 1930's Jumbo guitars have been making themselves heard. Turner Jumbo's are no exception and great for strummers who appreciate sheer projection that is without doubt 'loud' but also refined enough to maintain the full depth of a dreadnought combined with the extra bass created by the larger size of the guitars 430mm lower bout.

Featured here the Turner 55 CE utilizing tonewoods that blend with true harmony - in this case a solid 'Cedar' top paired with solid 'Mahogany' back and sides that radiate a warmth of tone that could easily melt chocolate! The colorful midrange from the mahogany & smooth warmth & clarity from the cedar will encourage and inspire your creativity. They're all our babies but we are really pleased how the 50 Series evolved here at Turner!

Subtlety perhaps best describes the Turner 50 Series. Using solid tonewoods that will mature wonderfully, the rich dark look of the cedar top suggests that you may have already owned it years! Offset pearl fret markers on the12th and a stunningly detailed soundhole rosette are the only enhancements shouting from this guitar. A faithful electronic system utilising the Fishman Isys+ system (which includes built in guitar tuner) offering a true acoustic tone either in a studio or playing live, simply unplugged these guitars sound great! A smooth venetian cutaway allows easy access to the upper frets.

What a beauty - the colour of the rosewood is dark and deep & looks lovely. The neck is very comfortable indeed and a low action makes it a very easy guitar to play. I love the headstock shape and the 45mm nut width is perfect for me as I fingerpick most of the time. The onboard tuner works great! Model: Turner 72 CE- Bob Smith
