Gregory Byers Classical Guitar Brazilian, 2011

Gregory Byers Classical Guitar Brazilian, 2011

A Gregory Byers Classical guitar is rare to see on the used market. He generally builds as many as twelve guitars per year, to order. His instruments are usually built one at a time, allowing Byers to give maximum attention to each specific guitar. Byers builds single top guitars (as opposed to double top), though he does use other techniques such as the ‘Elevated Fingerboard’ which really involves the top dropping down towards the heel.

Furch G23CR Cutaway Cedar Top Guitar, 2018

Furch G23CR Cutaway Cedar Top Guitar, 2018

Furch offers a wide range of body styles and wood options, and seems to focus on allowing the customer to customize, rather than making specific models with minimal substitutions. In effect, it’s almost entirely what others call their Custom Shop. As is identified on the label as a Furch G23CR Cutaway, this breaks down to Grand Auditorium body shape, style 23, with American Red Cedar top, Indian Rosewood back and sides, and a Cutaway. The neck is Mahogany, with Ebony for the fingerboard, bridge, and headplate.
