Bourgeois Vintage D Adirondack Top, 2015

Bourgeois Vintage D Adirondack Top, 2015

Here we’re treated to a Bourgeois Vintage D, dating to May 19 2015 and featuring an Adirondack Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back. The neck is Mahogany, with a Ziricote head plate, and Ebony is used for the bridge and bound fingerboard. Mother of Pearl is used for the Bourgeois headstock inlay and the snowflake position marker sets. The top is enclosed in an old-style Herringbone inlay, and the back has a ‘Zipper’ center strip.  Open gear,  nickel plated Waverly tuners – made in Bozeman, Montana, not far from the Gibson Acoustic shop – are at the head.

Kala Concert Ukulele Ziricote KA-ZCT-C

The Kala Concert Ukulele Ziricote line features a rich, dark, chocolate brown wood accentuated by a honey blonde Sapwood in the middle and along the sides, finished in a high-gloss to make the details pop. On these instruments, solid Ziricote is used for the top, back and sides, with Mahogany for the neck and body blocks. The fingerboard and bridge are Walnut.   Sealed tuners with black buttons are at the head.  Aquila Nylgut strings are used, and tie on in the same manner as on a Classical or Flamenco guitar.   The nut and saddle are Tusq.

❌SOLD❌Marc Beneteau OM Cedar and Padauk, 2011

This Marc Beneteau OM was built during 2011 at the Beneteau Guitars shop in St. Thomas, Ontario.   Marc has been building since 1974, originally in Ottawa.   He is largely self taught, though he’s taken inspiration from Jean Larrivee’s work.   Many prominent Canadian builders worked directly for or with Larrivee, but Marc did not, instead taking cues from Larrivee’s influences from classical guitar building, which produces a result quite different from the Martin – Gibson building styles.

❌ SOLD ❌ G W Barry Mod-C Ziricote Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2018

❌ SOLD ❌  G W Barry Mod-C Ziricote Cutaway Steel String Guitar, 2018

Here we have another “truly” handcrafted sonic masterpiece from the workshop of G.W. Barry, a ‘Mod-C Ziricote’.    This instrument is passing through our shop on the way to its new owner, and it looks so good we wanted to share it.   This is Mr. Barry’s Modified Concert model in Bear-claw Sitka Spruce and Ziricote. With a 15.5 in. lower bout width and 4.25 in. tail end depth the Mod-C bridges the gap between a standard OM and Dreadnought dimensions, while its curvaceous lines add an ergonomic comfort factor when in a seated playing position.
