The Black Bear

S/N 082023

This is the all new Blackwood Black Bear. Just slightly smaller than a dreadnought, this guitar has smooth round lines – a key part of the design concept. The guitar is full of details learned over many years of guitar making. This guitar is the most open, frankly LOUD guitar I have made. It is a true Cannon. I invite you to come to our store and try it out. Feel free to bring along your favourite guitar to compare them.


  • Hormigo back and sides, the “wood that sings”
  • Lutz sound board

  • 13-fret design lowers the bridge providing more drive
  • 2-way reverse truss rod eliminates truss rod cover on headstock.
  • Double side wall construction stiffens the body improving vibration transfer
  • 25.5 inch scale
  • Large sound port to direct sound back to the player.
  • Steam bent solid linings add to body strength
  • French polish finish simply does not dampen sound
  • Gotoh tuners (black), in keeping with the Black Bear theme.
