⚌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.

❌SOLD❌ G W Barry M Body Cutaway Indian Rosewood, 1995

The G W Barry M Body guitar is a very successful and versatile design based on the classic OM introduced by Martin, with a long scale neck on a 000 sized body. G W Barry has been building for decades starting with years for Jean Larrivee, and his skill at not only building but also voicing is evident in this 23-year old M body cutaway model. This particular guitar was recently rebuilt by Barry, with work including a neck reset with fret dress and a neck-off refinish of the top that included a repair to a top crack.
