Two New 2016 Guitars for Sale!
This guitar features a European spruce soundboard from the Alps and very old Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. Tuners are currently by Sloane, but Rodgers and Graf tuners are also available. When this guitar was almost complete I discovered a very minor hairline crack in the side. This I quickly and successfully repaired but I did not feel comfortable sending it off to a foreign country, where it was originally intended to go. Instead, I am offering it now, fully guaranteed, at a steeply discounted price. It has a lovely powerful tone with strong, singing first string and deep rich bass, and has room to grow into a truly wonderful guitar. Call me or email for more information.

This guitar was made to show at the 2016 GFA Convention in Denver, where it received consistently rave reviews. It features a magnificent Western red cedar soundboard of extremely low density. The back and sides are from nearly 40 year old Indian rosewood. The sides are doubled in thickness, laminated with the same Indian rosewood. The tuners are Sloane, but Rodgers or Graf can be substituted. This guitar is easy to play and is very powerful, rich and dark, yet very clear. This is a magnificent concert guitar, one of my “top 10” cedar guitars in 35 years of building. Discounted for the convention, it still remains at a very favorable price.
