The guitar was built by Nigel Forster when he worked for Stefan Sobell for 11 years.Stefan and Nigel jointly built the Sobell guitars during Nigel’s time with Stefan.
Nigel originally built this guitar for himself but then decided to sell it to a customer.
Nigel built the guitar as a standard Model O except for a few unique items:Nigel used a bracing pattern similar to the original Martin Simpson Guitars; Nigel pioneered a new (better) neck joint on this guitar that he and Stefan now use on all guitars; and Nigel picked out a special piece of spruce for the top with some very nice dark streaks and a distinctive bear claw.
