⚌Reduced‼  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❌ Suhr Modern Custom Claro Walnut HSH, 2015

❌SOLD❌  Suhr Modern Custom Claro Walnut HSH, 2015

This lovely Suhr Modern Custom sports a Claro Walnut top on a Spanish Cedar body, paired with a Pau Ferro neck and Macassar Ebony fingerboard!   Claro Walnut is also known as ‘California Black Walnut’.  Spanish Cedar or ‘Cedro’ is very commonly used for classical guitar necks, and for bodies on Suhr guitars. A quirk of the Suhr process is that the serial number is established at time of order, sometimes well before the instrument construction is begun, let alone finished.   While these numbers are consecutive, that doesn’t always match the sequence pieces are completed so dating via serial number is tougher.

❌SOLD❌ Suhr Modern Carved Top Lacewood and Cedar Fireburst 2017

Here is something not seen every day – a Suhr Modern Carved Top model with a chambered Lacewood top, Cedar back body. Suhr models start at professional grade and are largely custom order. A quirk of the Suhr process is that the serial number is established at time of order, sometimes well before the instrument construction is begun, let alone finished.   While these numbers are consecutive, that doesn’t always match the sequence pieces are completed.   Here, this Suhr Modern Carved Top model has a COA listing a date of 10/24/2017.

SOLD!!! Collings MT A Style Mandolin Satin Sunburst, 2019

SOLD!!! Collings MT A Style Mandolin Satin Sunburst, 2019

The Collings MT A Style mandolin is the entry point for Collings mandolins, and its lack of decoration doesn’t hide the quality of the instrument or the care with which it was built. The A Style mandolin appeared in the closing days of the 19th century as part of Orville Gibson’s revolutionary introduction of violin making principles to mandolin construction.   The results were such a dramatic improvement that the centuries old European bowl-back design almost died out in short order.
