Norman Guitars Launches the Newly Redesigned Norman Line

The new line offers eight new models with various body types, sizes, finishes, and electronics.

Montreal, QC (May 7, 2020) -- Norman Guitars is proud to announce the launch of the newly redesigned Norman line of acoustic guitars to honour the long-standing heritage and quality tradition it has been known for since 1972. This stunning acoustic series is rooted in innovation, while still maintaining classic detail and design.

Speaking of heritage, the Norman brand has always been and continues to be entirely made right here in Canada from inception to finished product. When you play a Norman guitar, you can be sure it is built of high-quality tonewoods and components, and that it will continue to feel and sound as great as the day you first strummed it.

Norman has always been about tradition and quality, and we continue to innovate on those same prestigious characteristics by bringing you a more modernized Country design, feel, and sound in the newly redesigned Norman line of guitars.

The revamped Norman line offers 8 new models, which range in body types and sizes, as well as in finishes and electronics.

From its humble beginnings, to the relentless pursuit of excellence and breaking new grounds in design and playability, Norman is still the brand of Canadians and players the world over.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
