❌ SOLD ❌ Gregory Byers Classical Guitar Brazilian, 2011

❌ SOLD ❌  Gregory Byers Classical Guitar Brazilian, 2011

A Gregory Byers Classical guitar is rare to see on the used market. He generally builds as many as twelve guitars per year, to order. His instruments are usually built one at a time, allowing Byers to give maximum attention to each specific guitar. Byers builds single top guitars (as opposed to double top), though he does use other techniques such as the ‘Elevated Fingerboard’ which really involves the top dropping down towards the heel.
