Fritz Mueller Classical Doubletop Guitar Ziricote, 2013

Fritz Mueller Classical Doubletop Guitar Ziricote, 2013

It is rare to see a Fritz Mueller classical guitar for sale on the open market, as he builds entirely to order and his instruments are prized. Mueller is a highly respected classical guitar builder working about 770 km north of Vancouver at Tatlayoko Lake in the Central Interior region of British Columbia. Inspired by the music of masters such as Segovia and Bream, Mueller began building guitars while an undergrad at the University of Wisconsin.

C. F. Martin OM-35 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2006

C. F. Martin OM-35 Steel String Guitar Sunburst, 2006

The C. F. Martin OM-35  was built between 2003 and 2007, drawing from the excellent tonal results of the OM design and adding ’35’ level features. While the OM-35 itself is discontinued, it is now available with a standard pickup as the OM-35E. The Martin OM is itself based on the OOO or ‘Triple O’ body design, but adds a longer scale length neck – 25.4 inches instead of the Triple O’s 24.9 inches. This increases the string tension, making the top work a bit harder to deliver a bit more volume and clarity.

‼️Reduced‼️ Ramirez SP Semi-Professional Spruce Top Classical Guitar, 2003

The Ramirez SP, now the Semi-Professional model, bridges the ‘Estudio’ and ‘Handcraft’ classical guitars and is intended for the accomplished student player about to move to professional status. Like other ‘Estudio’ models, the Semi-Professional is partly built in the city of Madrid at the Ramirez shop – it’s worth noting that Madrid prohibits spray finishing and so that type of finishing is done at shops outside the city limits.
