G W Barry Mod-C Ziricote Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2018

G W Barry Mod-C Ziricote Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2018

Here we have another “truly” handcrafted sonic masterpiece from the workshop of G.W. Barry, a ‘Mod-C Ziricote’.    This instrument is passing through our shop on the way to its new owner, and it looks so good we wanted to share it.   This is Mr. Barry’s Modified Concert model in Bear-claw Sitka Spruce and Ziricote. With a 15.5 in. lower bout width and 4.25 in. tail end depth the Mod-C bridges the gap between a standard OM and Dreadnought dimensions, while its curvaceous lines add an ergonomic comfort factor when in a seated playing position.

New! Collings OM1A Julian Lage Signature Guitar, 2018

New! Collings OM1A Julian Lage Signature Guitar, 2018

This Collings OM1 A Julian Lage signature model, using the A for Adirondack Spruce top option, is an exceptional guitar and was the last collaboration by Bill Collings before his death in 2017. Based on Lange’s original 1939 000-18, the Collings OM1-JL uses traditional materials – spruce top, mahogany back, sides and neck, and ebony for the fingerboard, headplate and bridge. The nut and saddle are bone. The  tuners are by Waverly, and work very well.   On this guitar, the neck is carved to match Lange’s.

The C. F. Martin D-28 Authentic 1937 is a re-creation of an iconic instrument, the pre-WW2 Martin D-28. Production of these guitars was disrupted by the onset of war, and changes in supply chains rippled through post war production. This example was built during 2014 in Nazareth, Pennsylvania pairing an Adirondack Spruce top with Madagascar Rosewood for the back, sides and headplate, Mahogany for the neck, and Ebony for the bridge and unbound fingerboard.

❌ SOLD ❌ Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

❌ SOLD ❌  Bourgeois Slope D Adirondack Sunburst 2009

The Bourgeois Slope D is based on the large dreadnought body size, but with rounded or ‘Sloped’ upper bouts. The shape is similar to the original “Extra Large” dreadnought guitars made by C F Martin for the Ditson company from 1916 to 1930. Gibson also used the slope-shoulder form on many of their instruments, including the iconic J-45. However, during the 1960’s many of those models shifted to square shoulders to reflect market demand.

Price: $2999.99 CAD
