❌SOLD❌ Sergei de Jonge 7 String Short Scale 1999

Here we have another unusual instrument, a Sergei de Jonge 7 String Short Scale guitar with an Engelmann Spruce top and back and sides of Yew. Sergei de Jonge has been building for decades, beginning around 1969 in Toronto with Jean Larrivee, following an introduction by the late and celebrated guitar teacher Eli Kassner. After working with Pat Lister in Collingwood around 1971, de Jonge set up his own shop in Toronto in 1972 and has been building nad teaching on his own since then, aside from a one year break while living in Holland. Currently his shop is located in Chelsea, Quebec.

Thomas Malapanis Classical Guitar, 2004

Thomas Malapanis Classical Guitar, 2004

Here we are looking at the Thomas Malapanis Classical numbered 26, and dated to 2004.  The top is Red Cedar,  while the sides, back, headplate and bridge are Cocobolo.  The sides are lined with a Cypress or Sycamore facing, not the same as ‘laminate’ woods,  a technique pioneered by Jose Ramirez III to help increase clarity, and still used on some higher end Ramirez models.

❌SOLD❌  Johnny Walker Grand Concert Cutaway Classical Guitar, 2010

Here is a rarity – a fine Johnny Walker Grand Concert cutaway classical guitar, built during 2010 at Walker’s shop in the heartlands of Bartlesville, Oklahoma. Originally trained as a research chemist, Johnny Walker developed an interest in classical guitar and while taking lessons, decided to build a better guitar from a kit.  That worked out well and led to another, then another, and by 1966 Johnny Walker Guitars was born.

❌SOLD❌ C. F. Martin 00-42SC John Mayer 'Stagecoach' Guitar, 2016

Here’s an interesting instrument – From C F Martin, the 00-42SC John Mayer model, which replicates a Stagecoach or early Travel Guitar! This spectacular instrument combines a 00 size body with Sitka Spruce and Cocobolo, and adds ’42’ series inlays and appointments. A 12-fret neck and slotted peghead are used to keep the dimensions down, keeping in mind that the SC designates that these originally were designed to be used as entertainment on stagecoach journeys (or perhaps ordeals).
