Sergei de Jonge Classical Guitar Natural, 1980

Sergei de Jonge Classical Guitar Natural, 1980

This Sergei de Jonge Classical guitar was built during 1980 in Toronto, following de Jonge’s return to Canada from a year in Holland and creation of a new workshop. Having learned guitar building in Toronto during the years 1969 to 1971 from Jean Larrivee and Edgar Monch via Eli Kassner, and then a year with Patt Lister in Collingwood, this de Jonge classical shows these strong influences.

Martin D-35 Dreadnought Natural, 1971- (No Longer Available)

Martin D-35 Dreadnought Natural, 1971- (No Longer Available)

The Martin D-35 Dreadnought first appeared in 1965, partly as a way to use the remaining stock of Brazilian Rosewood sections that were too small for a two-piece back. Drawing from the very successful D bodied Dreadnought, the Martin D-35 was placed between the venerable D-28 and more expensively decorated D-41 and D-45 models.

Laskin Short Scale Classical Guitar Natural, 2020 – (No Longer Available)

Laskin Short Scale Classical Guitar Natural, 2020 - (No Longer Available)

This William Laskin Short Scale Classical guitar, built during 2020 in Toronto, pairs a Sitka Spruce top with Wenge for the sides and back. In terms of being short scale – the scale length used here is 640mm or 25.19 inches. ‘Standard’ full concert scale length is 650mm, or 25.59 inches. The 10mm does make a noticeable difference in how easy it is to reach for low position fingerings! Aside from extremely high levels of general skill, one of the things William Laskin is known for is his work with engraved inlay, and many of his instruments feature examples, from the simple to the wildly complex.
