Taylor 514ce-N Crossover Cutaway Natural, 2012

Taylor 514ce-N Crossover Cutaway Natural, 2012

The Taylor 514ce-N, now discontinued, was a ‘crossover’ instrument, aimed at delivering the tone and touch response of nylon strings to the steel string player. Typically, crossover guitars have a cutaway body, narrower crowned fingerboards, pickup and preamp systems, and lower action than concert-style classical models. Some models have ‘thinline’ bodies as the volume produced by the body is exceeded by a supporting sound system.

Louis Panormo Guitar, “Maker’s Number 1890”, London 1841

Louis Panormo Guitar, "Maker's Number 1890", London 1841

This is one of our all-time favourites – a Louis Panormo guitar from 1841 with original, period-style coffin case and in fully playable condition! Louis Panormo was born in 1784, one of four sons of violin-maker, Vicenzo Panormo (1734-1813) who emigrated to England from Sicily. Vincenzo’s father was an apprentice of the Maestro himself: Antonio Stradivari. Louis became the most famous and respected of the Panormos, though all four brothers and nephews built guitars and violins for several decades, while others became respected musicians.

Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

Ramirez FL1A Flamenco Blanca Spruce, 2010

The now- discontinued Ramirez Fl1A Flamenco guitar is one of the standards for concert quality Flamenco instruments. It is traditionally constructed with a European spruce top, cypress back and sides and Spanish Cedar neck.  Ebony is used for the fingerboard and Indian Rosewood for the bridge, and the nut and saddle are bone.   The model name, FL1A, expands to ‘Flamenco’, Grade 1, and the A refers to the material for the top – Abeto, meaning ‘Fir’ but specifically Spruce as distinct from the Red Cedar pioneered by Jose Ramirez III.
