❌SOLD❌ M. Sakurai No.7 Classical Guitar, 1975

This M. Sakurai Number 7 guitar labelled as supervised by M. Kohno, and dating to 1975. It features a solid cedar top, solid Indian Rosewood for the back, sides, headplate and bridge, Mahogany for the neck (and blocks) with Ebony for the fingerboard. The binding is also rosewood. The construction looks like it’s done in the traditional Spanish style, with a ‘slipper heel’ but it is possible that the neck actually attaches with a dovetail joint.

Alhambra 10FP Carlos Pinana Flamenco Negra Guitar

Alhambra 10FP Carlos Pinana Flamenco Negra Guitar

The Alhambra 10FP Carlos Pinana Flamenco Negra guitar, a recent model from Alhambra guitars in the eastern part of Spain.  Many contemporary Flamenco players find they need a guitar that offers a fuller and rounder bass response, as well as the traditional treble-clarity and power one expects in a traditional Flamenco guitar. To this end we have seen an increasing number of Flamenco Guitars built with dark coloured Rosewood back and sides, commonly called Flamenco Negra guitars.

❌Sold❌ Siavash Tahmasebi 10 String Classical Guitar 2002

❌Sold❌ Siavash Tahmasebi 10 String Classical Guitar 2002

It’s unusual enough to come across 10 string classical guitar, but far more so to find one built by Siavash Tahmasebi in Iran. This is a top quality, concert grade guitar showing strong Spanish and other European influences, from the instrument concept itself to the label using Spanish terms, to the closely mitred purfling. The slotted peghead is distinctive, and likely helps to balance the instrument.

❌ SOLD ❌ Antonio Picado Model 62 Classical Concert Guitar, Brazilian

❌ SOLD ❌  Antonio Picado Model 62 Classical Concert Guitar, Brazilian

This Antonio Picado Model 62 is in good condition, with Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides, a refinished Spruce top and top quality Gotoh tuners. There is some light scuffing on the back, perhaps from buttons. It’s had a refret with Jim Dunlop 6105 fretwire – which is fairly high, and provides additional tonal clarity and separation – at The Twelfth Fret’s repair shop. Recently, the frets were dressed and the guitar set up at our shop, and it plays very well. A hard shell case is included.

❌SOLD❌ William Laskin Classical Guitar, 2001

❌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.

❌SOLD❌ Caldersmith Concert Classical Number 73, Red Cedar and Walnut, 2009

Here’s a treat – a Graham Caldersmith Concert Classical Number 73 guitar from 2009, with lattice-braced Red Cedar top and lovely American Walnut for the back and sides.
Graham Caldersmith has long been interested in musical instruments, and after a detour that led to a Masters in Aerophysics – advanced study of Mars – in 1978 he decided to shift to full time lutherie. His shop builds concert classical guitars, violins, violas, and cellos, based on careful research he himself conducts.
