❌SOLD❌ La Esperanza Classe 1000 Concert Classical Guitar, 1979

❌SOLD❌ La Esperanza Classe 1000 Concert Classical Guitar, 1979

Here we have a nicely kept La Esperanza Classe 1000 classical guitar built during 1979 in the shop of Masaru Matano or his successors in Kurume, Japan. Matano’s shop built the La Esperanza Classe 1000 and lower priced Classe 600 for sale for the company name “Ongaku Geijutsusha Co” and these models were based on Ramirez instruments. The Classe 1000 features a Red Cedar top and double layer Rosewood sides and back, which is not quite the same as laminated. Here, the two layers are of Brazilian Rosewood and are used to reduce overtones and ‘wolf’ tones when the guitar is played loudly.

❌SOLD❌ Laskin Cedar Top Steel String Guitar, 1977

❌SOLD❌ Laskin Cedar Top Steel String Guitar, 1977

It’s perhaps an odd thing, but guitars from very highly skilled builders, like this William Laskin Cedar Top Steel String are often in pristine condition and this can lead the builder to wonder if the owner doesn’t like them enough to play them. This Laskin Cedar Top Steel String was built, signed and dated during 1977 at Laskin’s Toronto shop and has a serial number, 250477, stamped on the neck block. The top is Red Cedar, with Indian Rosewood for the sides, back, and head plate. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge.
