G W Barry Mod-C Ziricote Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2018

G W Barry Mod-C Ziricote Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2018

Here we have another “truly” handcrafted sonic masterpiece from the workshop of G.W. Barry, a ‘Mod-C Ziricote’.    This instrument is passing through our shop on the way to its new owner, and it looks so good we wanted to share it.   This is Mr. Barry’s Modified Concert model in Bear-claw Sitka Spruce and Ziricote. With a 15.5 in. lower bout width and 4.25 in. tail end depth the Mod-C bridges the gap between a standard OM and Dreadnought dimensions, while its curvaceous lines add an ergonomic comfort factor when in a seated playing position.
