‼️Reduced‼️ William Laskin 7 String Acoustic Guitar, 1992

William Laskin is very well known for the creativity and quality of his inlay work. Here, a stag or buck – a male deer with antlers is depicted between frets 11 and 18, in a mixture of engraved woods and, it appears, ivory for the antlers. This guitar is old enough that small amounts of ivory were still used, and here appears in the nut, saddle, sliding nut components, and the inlaid antlers.

❌ 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.
