Anya

Sold

 

Meet Anya, a classical guitar in the old school tradition that includes a hand-rubbed French polish finish. Hand-selected top grade Engelmann Spruce for the top and Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides form the body, a Spanish Cedar neck with Ebony fingerboard and a stunning Redwood Burl rosette all come together to create something far greater than the sum of their parts.

 

Anya is tonally well balanced, has great string separation and clarity.

Arrakis

My newest dreadnought is “Arrakis” (the spice), she truly is from some distant planet.  She is the delightful “evil twin” sister to a 12-string I made a couple months back, her first notes were played last week. I kinda made it for myself but she’s up for grabs.

Dolores

$6,500.00 U.S.

 

Dolores is a 00-14 model consisting of Indian rosewood back and sides with European spruce top and Spanish cedar neck.  The binding, rosette and head inlays are snakewood; very warm and elegant.  Right now I am very fond of the wheatgrass purfling I used around the top and rosette.  The short 24.9” string scale make big stretches so easy and the small body size fits like a glove even for the petite player.

This 12 fret to the body steel string was a crowd favorite at the Santa Barbara Acoustic Instrument Celebration. When you hear her for the first time you’re just gone, it’s over.  The Cocobolo is absolutely beautiful and the Sitka spruce top is highly figured.

 

Only the best for this girl, she has Asian Burl Wood inlay on the headstock, Indian Rosewood binding, chevron profiling, Abalone inlay on the rosette, and, hand-made Alessi tuners from Italy with real Mother of Pearl on the tuner buttons.  Give up now!  Drop me a note.
