Ashley Leanne Classical Guitar, 2015

Brand:

Instrument Categories: ,

This Ashley Leanne Classical guitar with Red Cedar top and Rosewood back and sides, was built at her shop near Cambridge, Ontario. Ashley Leanne has been studying with luthier Paul Saunders since 2012 near Welland, Ontario.

The Ashley Leanne Classical guitar dates to 2015 and is in overall very good condition. It features mostly traditional Spanish classical construction, including a ‘slipper foot’ heel, where the heel block receives two cuts that the sides slot into; the back extends over the bottom of the heel forming a cap. This guitar also has a port on the bass upper side, and the heel construction can be clearly seen through the port.

The top is Red Cedar with Spruce fan bracing, paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides, back, headplate, backstrap and bridge. Mahogany is used for the neck, body blocks and back bracing, and the fingerboard and neck stiffener are Ebony. Flame Maple is used for the body binding, and the bridge’s tie block has a small Abalone top panel. Tuners are gold coloured with Rosewood buttons.

In a departure from traditional Spanish construction, the Rosewood back has a Mahogany X-brace. This is likely done to increase stiffness, and hence volume and projection.

This Ashley Leanne Classical is in overall very good condition with virtually no dents or scratches. The Lacquer finish is naturally sinking into the wood pores, indicating that the finish is relatively thin and unrestrictive.

The original SKB hard shell case is included.

Here’s a brief bio from Ashley Leanne:

“Growing up with her father being a woodworker, Ashley always loved creating and designing everything and anything in the workshop. Her love for creative woodworking and her passion for the guitar eventually collided after meeting Paul and formed what is now “Ashley Leanne Guitars”.

Every handcrafted Ashley Leanne guitar is created with immense love and passion.”
