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.

SOLD!!! Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

SOLD!!! Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

The Ibanez S61AL Axion Label is a slim double cutaway guitar with curvy lines and a fast playing neck. In contrast to the sharper lines of the Ibanez RG line this guitar takes more cues from other classic double cutaways. However, the reverse headstock, arched top and black mirage gradation finish certainly provide a modern aesthetic as well. The body of the Ibanez S61AL is made from Nyatoh which is often used as cost effective substitute for mahogany and it has a warm tone with full lower midrange. The flame maple cap adds a little bit of brightness and looks killer with the black mirage gradation finish.

❌SOLD❌ Collings CJ35 GSB Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 2013

❌SOLD❌  Collings CJ35 GSB Slope Shoulder Dreadnought Sunburst, 2013

The Collings CJ35 GSB is a spectacular guitar, evoking the looks feel and tone of generally unavailable vintage pieces – but with very high build and finish quality. This 2013 example is in great condition with very little wear of any kind, and is sold with its original Collings branded hard shell case. The Collings CJ35 is normally built with a Sitka Spruce top, but here as noted in the ‘GSB’ part of the name, German Spruce was chosen for the top, and there’s a traditional dark Sunburst finish.
