Siavash Tahmasebi 10 String Classsical Guitar 2002

Siavash Tahmasebi 10 String Classsical Guitar 2002

It’s unusual enough to come across 10 string classical guitar, but far more so to find one built by Siavash Tahmasebi in Iran. This is a top quality, concert grade guitar showing strong Spanish and other European influences, from the instrument concept itself to the label using Spanish terms, to the closely mitred purfling. The slotted peghead is distinctive, and likely helps to balance the instrument.

Antonio Picado Model 62 Classical Concert Guitar, Brazilian

Antonio Picado Model 62 Classical Concert Guitar, Brazilian

This Antonio Picado Model 62 is in good condition, with Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides, a refinished Spruce top and top quality Gotoh tuners. There is some light scuffing on the back, perhaps from buttons. It’s had a refret with Jim Dunlop 6105 fretwire – which is fairly high, and provides additional tonal clarity and separation – at The Twelfth Fret’s repair shop. Recently, the frets were dressed and the guitar set up at our shop, and it plays very well. A hard shell case is included.

William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

this guitar, built during 2001 at Laskin’s shop in Toronto, Canada, needs no decoration beyond the spectacular grain of its Brazilian Rosewood back, sides, headplate and bridge. This set shows off the key visual elements of this species – the dark veining, deep patterning, and a subtle orange glow. The top is red cedar, the neck spanish cedar, and the fingerboard ebony. The bass bout includes the Laskin Arm-rest, designed to make the player more comfortable without compromising any of the tonal characteristics of the box. It is built in the traditional Spanish method, with a ‘slipper foot’ that the sides slot into.

SOLD! Ramirez SPR Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2012

SOLD!  Ramirez SPR Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2012

The Ramirez SPR classical guitar continues the tradition of the Ramirez 1a Especial model. Conceived by the maestro-luthier Amalia Ramirez, the SP-R furthers the evolution to the ‘modern’ sound. In the model designation, the SP refers to ‘Semi Professional’ and the R for Revised – this model supersedes and improves the original Ramirez SP. Based on professional grade model designs, the top of the Ramirez SPR is built at the Ramirez shop and the guitar completed offsite. The Ramirez home shop is not a large place, and Madrid doesn’t allow spray finishing within the city limits, so offsite completion is necessary.

Price: $3650 CAD
