|Comments||David Wren has been one of Canada’s premiere builders for decades, along with stints doing repairs at The Millwheel in downtown Toronto and being part owner of The Twelfth Fret.
This 2010 Wren Concert is in excellent condition and is a fine example of David’s work. Impeccable build quality and attention to detail, the best available materials, and an excellent hand-rubbed French Polish finish combine in a visually and tonally spectacular instrument.

|Finish||French polish finish – hand rubbed shellac. Many premium builders use french polish now; while this technique does not give the glassy surface of sprayed lacquers or urethanes, the thin, satin coating protects the wood while allowing nearly unrestricted vibration, and is much more easily repairable.|
