Ashley Leanne Classical Guitar, 2015

Ashley Leanne Classical Guitar, 2015

The Ashley Leanne Classical guitar dates to 2015 and is in overall very good condition. It features mostly traditional Spanish classical construction, including a ‘slipper foot’ heel, where the heel block receives two cuts that the sides slot into; the back extends over the bottom of the heel forming a cap. This guitar also has a port on the bass upper side, and the heel construction can be clearly seen through the port.

Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

Ibanez JSM100 John Scofield Model Thinline Sunburst, 2009

The Ibanez JSM100 uses the same construction concept as other ES models, but the wood choice is a bit different. The body, instead of using Maple laminate, uses figured Anigre, an African hardwood, for the laminate. The center block is Maple, as is the neck, which has an Ebony fingerboard. Decoration is similar to other Ibanez models in this range; hardware is gold plated, and the inlays include a mix of Abalone and Acrylic for the block markers on the bound, compound radius fingerboard.

‼️Reduced‼️  Tim Reede Custom OM Palo Escrito Steel String Guitar, 2016

Tim Reede’s instruments are demonstrations of his skill and craftsmanship, and also of his understanding of what a guitar needs – an understanding comes from actually playing them. Here we have a Tim Reed Palo OM, built during 2017 at Reede’s shop in Minneapolis using bearclaw spruce, likely Sitka, for the top, Palo Escrito for the sides and back, and a 5-piece neck of mahogany, walnut and maple. The headplate, fingerboard and bridge are Indian Rosewood with bone for the nut and saddle. The top features a very blue Abalone rosette. Tuners are Gotoh 510 models, very smooth and accurate.
