Pat Malone

Pat Malone now lives in Santa Fe, and you can catch him performing in various local venues. The best way to learn about where is to add your name to his mailing list by contacting him here  or check out his website here.

Pat plays a flat top cutaway steel string I made with his touch in mind. Often his listeners are wondering if they are hearing a steel string or a classical guitar. This instrument has a modified fan bracing pattern with European spruce soundboard. Indian Rosewood back and sides, 630mm (24.8″) scale.

Pat uses Thomastic Spectrum strings on this instrument. When plugged in he uses a Baggs Lyric pickup system, and an AER compact 60 amp.
