❌SOLD❌  Russell Lackey LT1 T-Style Cherry, 2022

Here we have a Russell Lackey LT1 T-Style guitar, built near Toronto by a former craftsperson at The Twelfth Fret Repair shop. The Russell Lackey LT1 shown here is Russ’s interpretation of a great classic. The LT1 strongly resembles the guitar that inspired it, but with a few changes, feeling that the market didn’t need another vintage reissue.

❌SOLD❌  Lado Solo 1 Solidbody Maple Walnut, 1981

This Natural Maple Lado Solo 1 likely dates to 1981, when the through-neck design really took off for companies like Lado and B.C Rich. Many top level players used these guitar designs as an alternative to the standard Gibson and Fender models; they offered new looks and vastly more tonal possibilities.

Laskin Short Scale Classical Guitar Natural, 2020 – (No Longer Available)

Laskin Short Scale Classical Guitar Natural, 2020 - (No Longer Available)

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.
