❌SOLD❌  Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String

The Taylor 812ce 12 Fret Cutaway Steel String is a very good sounding guitar and demonstrates the added projection and sustain from the new V-Class bracing pattern.  Starting from the Grand Concert design, a soft Venetian cutaway is added, and the body is built using a Sitka Spruce top paired with traditional Indian Rosewood for the back and sides.  The 12-fret neck is Mahogany, with Ebony used for the headplate, bridge,  and bound fingerboard.

The Yamaha Grand Concert FC10 was part of Yamaha’s efforts to create top quality classical and flamenco guitars, an effort that began in the mid 1960s. At that point, Yamaha arranged for three luthiers – Hiroshi Harada, Hideyuki Ezaki and Toshio Kato, to learn from Spanish master Eduardo Ferrer.  Ferrer subsequently travelled repeatedly to Japan to aid in the production setup.

C F Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe Guitar

C F Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe Guitar

The C F Martin D-28 has for many decades been one of the benchmarks for acoustic guitars, and the brand-new Martin D-28 Modern Deluxe brings new features to this venerable design. Originally introduced around 1911 as a large model for the Ditson company, the D-28 reappeared in the 1930s and has been in production ever since. There have been a number of changes over the years – notably, Brazilian Rosewood has not been used since the early 1970’s – but the core design is unchanged.
