🍁 Canada Day 🍁 Feature - Stan Rogers' William Laskin Guitar (Not For Sale)

Stan Rogers created a legacy of songs that celebrate our country and the spirit of its people. His musical and lyrical craftsmanship made him a songwriter for the ages. His untimely passing in a tragic airline disaster ripped a page out of our young countries cultural fabric far too soon – but, his songs live on and will never be forgotten.

❌ SOLD ❌ William Laskin 12-String Guitar, 1976

This William Laskin 12-String seems strongly influenced by the Larrivee body design, which in turn is based on the proportions of classical guitars by Hermann Hauser. These proportions provide a full, well balanced tone with plenty of volume. This piece uses a Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood for the sides, three-piece back, and the headstock overlay that carries the Canada Goose inlay. The neck is mahogany, and the bound fingerboard and bridge are Ebony.

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

this guitar, built during 2001 at Laskin’s shop in Toronto, Canada, needs no decoration beyond the spectacular grain of its Brazilian Rosewood back, sides, headplate and bridge. This set shows off the key visual elements of this species – the dark veining, deep patterning, and a subtle orange glow. The top is red cedar, the neck spanish cedar, and the fingerboard ebony. The bass bout includes the Laskin Arm-rest, designed to make the player more comfortable without compromising any of the tonal characteristics of the box. It is built in the traditional Spanish method, with a ‘slipper foot’ that the sides slot into.
