William Laskin Cedar Top Classical Guitar, 1992

William Laskin Cedar Top Classical Guitar, 1992

Here we have a William Laskin Cedar Top classical guitar, built during 1992 and featuring the Laskin Arm Rest, 655mm scale length and very nice Indian Rosewood sides and back.
Built in the traditional Spanish style with a slipper heel integrating the body and neck, this William Laskin Cedar Top classical is in good condition. It has some honest wear from its use in many performances and recording sessions, in both Classical and Latin genres.  There are a few small pressure marks on the back and top, and a small mark behind the bridge from an errant string end.

William Laskin Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1987

William Laskin Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1987

Here we’re looking at a William Laskin Flamenco Blanca guitar, dating to 1987 and built at his Toronto workshop and recently set up by The Twelfth Fret Repair Shop. It is built in the traditional Spanish manner with a ‘slipper heel’. In this design, the neck is essentially one piece (aside from any scarf joint for the peghead) and the carved heel and neck block are separated by slots that the sides fit into. This construction method is quite different from the use of a dovetail or mortise and tenon joint, or any of the newer hybrid joints that may include a single bolt.

William Laskin Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1987

William Laskin Flamenco Blanca Guitar, 1987

The Laskin Flamenco is built using a Sitka Spruce top paired with a Cypress back and side set, and Cedro or Spanish Cedar for the neck, linings, and back bracing. Construction is the traditional Spanish ‘slipper foot’ style – the neck, heel and neck block are one unit, with the sides slotting into the heel. This is in distinct contrast to other methods where the neck and body are built separately, often using a dovetail or mortise and tenon joint. The head plate and binding are Ebony, and the fingerboard is Ebony with Ebony binding. The bridge is Indian Rosewood.

This William Laskin Steel String was built at Laskin’s shop in Toronto, Ontario during 2005, and features a Red Cedar top and quite a dark set of Brazilian Rosewood for the back and sides. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany, with Ebony used for the head plate, fingerboard bridge and binding. The rosette has a ring of Abalone, but otherwise this guitar is quite simply but elegantly adorned;  a line of purfling follows the complete top including around the arm-rest and around the fingerboard tag.
