Simon and Patrick Showcase Folk Rosewood Element All-Solid Electro-Acoustic w/LR Baggs Element - Ex-Demo
The S&P Showcase guitars are the upper echelon of the entire line. Superbly crafted in a separate, secluded acoustic studio where each guitar can be individually & meticulously crafted by a handful of the finest luthiers in the business.
This particular Showcase model is based upon the popular folk size with solid rosewood appointed to the back and side,s offering a warm smooth tone with a clear responsiveness - ideal for fingerstyle, flatpicking and light strumming.

Being artists in their own right, these luthiers devote much time and attention to every aspect in the process of building these high-end guitars. Both the look and more importantly the sound of these fine instruments are brought to fruition by the passion and artistry of the luthiers who lend their craftsmanship to each guitar.
The Showcase models are some of the best acoustic guitars we have ever built. Featuring only the highest grade of Select Pressure Tested solid spruce tops which are tuned and supported by the strong, yet extra-light, Adirondack spruce bracing to achieve an exceptionally dynamic response. The Showcase bodies are complemented by the sound and look of the finest solid wood back & sides and then finished with a high-gloss Custom Polished finish.
The mahogany necks are sanded and finished by hand to provide remarkable comfort and playability up and down the rosewood fingerboard. The classic aesthetic beauty of these acoustic guitars are accentuated by the intricate wood rosette, natural wood binding, high-ratio gold plated tuners with cream buttons, deluxe Tusq bridge pins by Graphtech and the hand contoured high-gloss headstocks.
The Element Active System-VTC builds on the strengths of the EAS with the addition of a treble tone control and a special low frequency compression circuit. The LF compressor tames low end thump and mimics the actual dynamic response of the guitar for enhanced realism.
Protection…so you can play!
The TRIC case not only offers acoustic guitars unparalleled protection against the usual “bangs & bumps” in the everyday life of a musician but also offers up high-tech protection from the elements.
High-Tech Impact Resistance
Made of Expanded Polypropylene, which is the same shock absorbent, high-tech material used by the automotive industry in bumper cores, it can also be found in the manufacturing of bicycle helmets. The high impact resistant material trusted to save the human head is now available for your acoustic guitar.
Heat, cold and moisture beware!!
TRIC stands for “Thermally Regulated Instrument Case.” Drastic changes in climate and temperature can play havoc on an acoustic guitar and the TRIC case offers protection like never before against the elements. The TRIC case is temperature tested to –35C (-31F) and up to +65C (+150F), proving this case can withstand extreme conditions, all the while leaving your guitar sheltered and protected in its very own comfortable climate zone.

It offers all the protection of a flight case at a fraction of the weight. As light as a gig bag, the TRIC case weighs in at just under 3.65 pds. To accentuate the ease of carrying this case it features pre-installed D-rings for a shoulder strap. Who would have thought! Carrying a guitar case over your shoulder… without the aches and pains!
