Here we have another fine instrument from the Clarendon, Ontario shop of Oskar Graf.
This 1979 Oskar Graf classical has all the standard features – Indian rosewood and figured spruce top with 7-bar fan bracing, mahogany neck and ebony fingerboard. It’s been played over the last three decades and has opened up to produce a lovely, full, warm tone with lots of projection. It has a few marks from use over the years, but structurally there are no problems at all. It’s a wonderful instrument with great response.
