Here we have a Hans Schmidt Classical Guitar, built in Rock Creek BC during the 1980s and featuring a lovely Brazilian Rosewood set for the sides, back and head plate. While there isn’t a lot of information available,  Hans Schmidt apparently built classical guitars and Celtic Harps during the 1980s and 1990s in his workshops in the southern central area of British Columbia,  at the lower end of the Okanagan Valley, not far from the Canadian border.  This is a spectacular area!

❌SOLD❌Marc Beneteau OM Cedar and Padauk, 2011

❌SOLD❌Marc Beneteau OM Cedar and Padauk, 2011

This Marc Beneteau OM was built during 2011 at the Beneteau Guitars shop in St. Thomas, Ontario.   Marc has been building since 1974, originally in Ottawa.   He is largely self taught, though he’s taken inspiration from Jean Larrivee’s work.   Many prominent Canadian builders worked directly for or with Larrivee, but Marc did not, instead taking cues from Larrivee’s influences from classical guitar building, which produces a result quite different from the Martin – Gibson building styles.
