The Sadowsky LS-17

Sadowski LS17Designed for lovers of the classic “EL FIVE,” the LS-17’s appeal lies in its 17″ wide body and 25 1/2″ scale length giving the player a big, warm sound. The thinner 2 3/4″ body makes the guitar much more comfortable to play and the 5-ply maple laminate construction helps reduce feedback.
Designed for the working musician, the LS-17 is a roadworthy instrument, optimized for amplified playing and priced affordably when compared to its carved siblings.
The Sadowsky LS-17. A jazz standard … redefined.
