Guitars available for sale
My 100th guitar is now available for sale. This guitar was built 2 years ago, and spent 15 months in the very capable hands of Marcin Dylla. Marcin saw the guitar at the Classical Guitar Retreat in Scotland in 2015 (see Samples page), and liked it enough to ask to have the guitar on loan for a year. I now have the guitar back in my workshop, and am offering it for sale for £4,200.
There is a more detailed description and more photos of the guitar here.
I will have 2 other guitars available by the end of August. One is a standard spruce Indian rosewood model, and the other is a non-tropical guitar, with walnut neck, back and sides. You will be able to see both guitars in Liers, Belgium (April 14th – 16th), Greenwich Guitar Festival, London (June 25th – 27th), Cumbrae, Scotland (July 8th – 10th) and West Dean, West Sussex (August 20th).
The Panormo guitar featured in the Galleries is now available for sale. This is the only Panormo copy I have made to date, and it has Indian rosewood back and sides, radiussed rosewood fingerboard a spruce top, Gotoh tuners, and an oil finish. The guitar is based on a 1838 Panormo, and features an early version of fan bracing. Scale length is 634mm, and neck width is 48mm at the nut. The neck is mahogany, and is attached to the flamed maple head with a V-joint typical of Panormo guitars.
James Westbrook (acknowledged expert on Panormo guitars) recently tried this guitar at the West Dean Guitar Festival and was very impressed.
The guitar is as new, but is a few years old, having been exhibited for the past 2 years, so the price has been reduced to £2,950. Contact me by email for further information.
