NO LONGER AVAILABLE!‼ Laskin Short Scale Classical Guitar Natural, 2020

This William Laskin Short Scale Classical guitar, built during 2020 in Toronto, pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Wenge for the sides and back. In terms of being short scale – the scale length used here is 640mm or 25.19 inches. ‘Standard’ full concert scale length is 650mm, or 25.59 inches. The 10mm does make a noticeable difference in how easy it is to reach for low position fingerings! Aside from extremely high levels of general skill, one of the things William Laskin is known for is his work with engraved inlay, and many of his instruments feature examples, from the simple to the wildly complex.

❌SOLD❌ Laskin Cedar Top Steel String Guitar, 1977

It’s perhaps an odd thing, but guitars from very highly skilled builders, like this William Laskin Cedar Top Steel String are often in pristine condition and this can lead the builder to wonder if the owner doesn’t like them enough to play them. This Laskin Cedar Top Steel String was built, signed and dated during 1977 at Laskin’s Toronto shop and has a serial number, 250477, stamped on the neck block. The top is Red Cedar, with Indian Rosewood for the sides, back, and head plate. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony used for the fingerboard and bridge.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! William Laskin 7 String Acoustic Guitar, 1992

William Laskin is very well known for the creativity and quality of his inlay work. Here, a stag or buck – a male deer with antlers is depicted between frets 11 and 18, in a mixture of engraved woods and, it appears, ivory for the antlers. This guitar is old enough that small amounts of ivory were still used, and here appears in the nut, saddle, sliding nut components, and the inlaid antlers.
