IRIS GUITARS are the new production model manufactured by Circle Strings. After many years of custom guitar building, we are proud to introduce an affordable, high-end acoustic guitar, MADE IN THE USA, that is the perfect tool for any beginner or professional musician. The guitar is our own shape, along the lines of an 00/LG style with 14 frets to the body, 25" scale, and 1 11/16" nut. There is no rosewood or ebony on this guitar, which means it can be shipped or taken across any border. Making an affordable, high end acoustic guitar is not an easy task at such a small level. Because of this, this is a bare bones model with basic appointments to excite even the serious guitar aficionado. If you have been interested in a Circle Strings guitar, but can't afford it, this is the perfect introduction to our guitars. Our goal is to make the best guitars we can for the player.
