Comins Guitars Introduces First Solidbody

After a long career in the field of archtop guitars, Comins introduces the Lyrist.

Willow Grove, PA (September 9, 2008) -- A self-proclaimed archtop fan and builder for 15 years, luthier Bill Comins has developed his first solidbody guitar. The Lyrist was developed by Comins after constant urging from customers and endorsees.

Comins got his professional luthiery experience in a violin shop and the Lyrist is a testament to his time there. "With an unpretentious yet poised aesthetic evocative of the violin world, the Lyrist combines high end materials and appointments with proven design elements and precise setup work," says Comins.
