Michael A Lewis ‘Le Petite Rougette’ Archtop Guitar Red, 2009

Michael A Lewis 'Le Petite Rougette' Archtop Guitar Red, 2009

Michael A Lewis builds very high quality archtop guitars and mandolins in his Grass Valley, California workshop.

Built for the 2009 Montreal Guitar Show as part of the ‘Red Collection’, this Michael A Lewis ‘Le Petite Rougette’ archtop is an excellent illustration of Lewis’s skill. Fully acoustic with an Bartolini jazz pickup mounted to the fingerboard and pickup, this guitar is in excellent condition.

SOLD!!! Alexander James Jazz Tribute Bass, Wenge and Maple, 2013

SOLD!!! Alexander James Jazz Tribute Bass, Wenge and Maple, 2013

Alexander James hand-builds guitars and basses at his shop in Peterborough, Ontario. He specializes in using exotic woods to achieve specific tones. He has been building since 2002, and has operated Alexander James Guitars since 2008. This bass is in very good condition with very little wear – especially to the stainless steel frets, which should last a very long time. The finish is a natural oil, and shows off the grain nicely. This bass does have a bit of heft at over 11 pounds, but has lots of sustain, top end and bite, yet still has a warm roundness to the tone. A hard shell case is included.

Price: $999.99 CAD
