❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Cedar Top Classical Guitar, 1992

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Cedar Top Classical Guitar, 1992

Here we have a William Laskin Cedar Top classical guitar, built during 1992 and featuring the Laskin Arm Rest, 655mm scale length and very nice Indian Rosewood sides and back.
Built in the traditional Spanish style with a slipper heel integrating the body and neck, this William Laskin Cedar Top classical is in good condition. It has some honest wear from its use in many performances and recording sessions, in both Classical and Latin genres.  There are a few small pressure marks on the back and top, and a small mark behind the bridge from an errant string end.

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Steel String Guitar Brazilian, 2005

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Steel String Guitar Brazilian, 2005

This William Laskin Steel String was built at Laskin’s shop in Toronto, Ontario during 2005, and features a Red Cedar top and quite a dark set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony used for the head plate, fingerboard bridge and binding. The rosette has a ring of Abalone, but otherwise this guitar is quite simply but elegantly adorned;  a line of purfling follows the complete top including around the arm-rest and around the fingerboard tag.

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Custom Steel String for Bill Collings, 1992

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Custom Steel String for Bill Collings, 1992

This William Laskin Custom is very unusual – built to order during 1992 by one of Canada’s finest luthiers for one of the USA’s best – the late Bill Collings. William Laskin began building guitars during 1971 with an apprenticeship to Jean Larrivee. He is well known for the very high quality of his guitar construction, and also for the inventiveness and complexity of his engraved inlay work, much of which is spectacular.

❌ SOLD ❌ Breedlove Cascade Mandolin Natural 2008

❌ SOLD ❌  Breedlove Cascade Mandolin Natural 2008

This Breedlove Cascade is likely named for the Cascade Mountains, a range that passes through Northern California, Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. It is perhaps a modified “A style” design, where the lower part of the body is teardrop shaped and the upper part has truncated horns, somewhat suggesting an “F style”. The body is built with Sitka Spruce for the carved, F-hole top, and flamed Maple for the sides, neck and carved back.

❌SOLD❌ Caldersmith Concert Classical Number 73, Red Cedar and Walnut, 2009

Here’s a treat – a Graham Caldersmith Concert Classical Number 73 guitar from 2009, with lattice-braced Red Cedar top and lovely American Walnut for the back and sides.
Graham Caldersmith has long been interested in musical instruments, and after a detour that led to a Masters in Aerophysics – advanced study of Mars – in 1978 he decided to shift to full time lutherie. His shop builds concert classical guitars, violins, violas, and cellos, based on careful research he himself conducts.
