Taylor 512ce Cedar Top Grand Concert Steel String

Taylor 512ce Cedar Top Grand Concert Steel String

The Taylor 512ce is a dream guitar for the fingerstyle player. The small grand concert body shape provides a very compact and comfortable playing experience and requires less energy to get the top moving. This allows players with a light touch to get a full sound from a smaller body. The Western Red Cedar top of the Taylor 512ce has lovely touch sensitivity and a warm midrange.  Red Cedar is used extensively on higher end classical guitars, as its voice develops faster than Spruce and is very responsive.

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! William Laskin 7 String Acoustic Guitar, 1992

NO LONGER AVAILABLE!!! 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❌ Collings MT A Style Mandolin Satin Sunburst, 2019

❌SOLD❌  Collings MT A Style Mandolin Satin Sunburst, 2019

The Collings MT A Style mandolin is the entry point for Collings mandolins, and its lack of decoration doesn’t hide the quality of the instrument or the care with which it was built. The A Style mandolin appeared in the closing days of the 19th century as part of Orville Gibson’s revolutionary introduction of violin making principles to mandolin construction.   The results were such a dramatic improvement that the centuries old European bowl-back design almost died out in short order.
