G W Barry Concert Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2000

G W Barry Concert Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2000

This G W Barry Concert Cutaway steel string dates to the year 2000 and was built in Toronto, using Sitka Spruce for the top, paired with Indian Rosewood for the back, and sides, and streaked Ebony for the fingerboard and bridge. The neck and blocks are Mahogany, and the rosette uses and Abalone ring. The Barry concert body draws from the proportions of the Gibson J-185, but in a more curvaceous – dare we say bodacious – rendering of that design.

‼️Reduced‼️ G W Barry M Body Cutaway Indian Rosewood, 1995

The G W Barry M Body guitar is a very successful and versatile design based on the classic OM introduced by Martin, with a long scale neck on a 000 sized body. G W Barry has been building for decades starting with years for Jean Larrivee, and his skill at not only building but also voicing is evident in this 23-year old M body cutaway model. This particular guitar was recently rebuilt by Barry, with work including a neck reset with fret dress and a neck-off refinish of the top that included a repair to a top crack.
