David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, 2002

David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, 2002

Here’s a rare treat – from 2002, a David Nichols 00 Body Steel String Guitar, at Custom Pearl Inlay in Whippleville, New York. Nichols has been the mainstay of the C F Martin inlay department since the late 1960’s and builds guitars and mandolins under his own name. This fine instrument is in very good condition. Built using the classic Martin 00 design, this guitar uses Bearclaw-figured Sitka Spruce for the top, Brazilian Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck and Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The top is braced with a forward shifted, scalloped layout.

Wildwood Troubador Black Walnut Banjo

Wildwood Troubador Black  Walnut Banjo

Here we have a slightly more dressed up Wildwood Troubador frailing banjo with binding and wood purfling on both neck and rim as well as some very tastefully executed abalone inlay work on the fingerboard and peghead. The Troubador is a professional level instrument in every regard. The wood selection is top notch as is the craftsmanship and attention to detail with regards to fit and finish. The tone projects without being harsh or losing the ‘old time’ clawhammer sound.
