⚌Reduced‼ GW Barry Concert LH CW Brazilian Rosewood, 2017

⚌Reduced‼ GW Barry Concert LH CW Brazilian Rosewood, 2017

This GW Barry Concert LH features a Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top paired with a lovely Brazilian Rosewood set for the sides, back and head plate. This guitar was built during 2017 at GW Barry’s shop in Toronto, Canada. High quality, high end and hand built Left Handed guitars are not very common, so it is a treat to see this fantastic piece from Toronto luthier G W Barry.  Barry has been building for over 35 years, including a five year working apprenticeship with Jean Larrivee.

Pre-Sold‼ G W Barry OM Cutaway Bearclaw Adirondack Top, 2020

Pre-Sold‼ G W Barry OM Cutaway Bearclaw Adirondack Top, 2020

Here is a brand new, pre-sold G W Barry OM cutaway model with a Bearclaw Spruce top, demonstrating Barry’s great skill in guitar building. Quality Adirondack Spruce is hard to come by… the elusive “bear-claw” feature present in this example is rare, to say the least. The stiffness exhibited by it allows for a top with a much higher “threshold” of volume and tone. Dynamics are at the heart of this choice, retaining detail for both lower and higher attack styles.

Taylor 814ce DLX Steel String Guitar, Natural

Taylor 814ce DLX Steel String Guitar, Natural

The Taylor 814ce DLX is a luxurious Grand Auditorium body shape which pairs a Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood sides and back with Taylor’s patented V-Class bracing to reach new levels of tonal performance. One of Taylor’s most popular shapes, the Grand Auditorium body is a versatile general-purpose guitar. Its width is similar to a dreadnought but with a much curvier shape which changes the response and dynamics. It is equally well suited to fingerstyle or strumming so you can use it for many different styles.

Lowden Guitars is still operating and producing high quality instruments under the leadership of George Lowden. The original Lowden company was on the verge of folding in 1988 due to weak demand for acoustic guitars, a situation pressuring many builders at the time.
