This is a guitar I have dreamed of making for a long time.
With the Nautilus hollowbody I set out to create something both elegant and timeless. These hollowbody’s are built to the same size and dimensions as the Nautilus solid bodies but with two large hollow chambers either side of a solid centre block. The beautiful tops are also carved both inside and out to an even thickness. These factors combine to give an exceptionally resonant guitar that doesn’t suffer from common feedback issues. The vintage style F holes are the perfect aesthetic to define the hollowbody model.
Acoustically, from the first strum, you can already hear the rich sustain and warm resonance. Amplified, these guitars can comfortably cover a really wide range of tones.
From warm soulful jazz through to blues, all the way to being able to handle surprisingly large amounts of gain.
“On plugging into a clean-ish 6V6-powered amp, with a touch of spring reverb providing the ambience, we’re struck immediately by the bell-like purity of the Nautilus’s voice – it will defy the expectations of anyone who assumes that a twin-humbucker single-cut is all about midrange push and brute force. There’s plenty of air, and the chambered construction and Fender-style scale length help the Nautilus sound open and expansive.” Chris Vinnicombe – guitar.com
The Nautilus Hollowbody is available with a variety of options to personalise your dream instrument. There are of course various colours, both solid and translucent, double stained maple tops, different neck profiles, pickup choices and a variety of fingerboard inlay options that are available.

I first saw Seth’s guitars at the Holy Grail Guitar show in 2015. I was immediately taken by the quality of the build and the finish details. I now own a Nautilus Hollowbody I bought at The Holy Grail Guitar show in 2016.
I highly recommend Seth’s guitars as true quality instruments, with high end woods and components crafted to be some of the finest instruments I have seen anywhere in the world.
On top if it I found Seth himself to be a pleasure to deal and interact with, and I can tell he loves his craft and his creations.
