❌SOLD❌ Kolya Panhauyzen Classical Guitar, 1983


Instrument Categories: , ,

Kolya Panhuyzen came to classical guitar building in a traditional way through family connections, particularly his uncle, Edgar Monch, at his workshops in Canada and Germany.

Panhuyzen has built for over 40 years,  beginning in the Toronto workshops of his uncle Edgar in the late 1960’s, and followed Monch to Germany in 1971. Panhuyzen returned to Canada in 1974, and in 1992 set up a second shop in Germany.

Building one instrument at a time, Kolya Panhuyzen has developed a strong reputation amongst professional musicians and advanced students.

Here we have a Kolya Panhuyzen Classical Guitar built during 1983 at the Panhuyzen shop in Toronto, Canada. Constructed in the traditional Spanish manner with ‘slipper’ heel and the sides tied into the block, this guitar features a Sitka Spruce top, Mahogany for the neck, Ebony for the fingerboard, and Brazilian Rosewood for the sides, back, headplate and bridge. The nut and saddle are bone, and the nickel-plated tuning machines are by Reischel, made in Munich, Germany. The bridge has a 12-hole tie block conversion, which allows greater breakover at the saddle. The bass side of the fingerboard has position marker dots at the 5th, 7th and 10th frets.

The internal construction is extremely neat and clean.

This guitar has been used as intended and has the marks to show it. There are a number of dents and scratches on the top, back and sides, and the treble side shows some finish damage. This instrument was recently serviced in our shop, including re-gluing loose back braces and setup.

Because it’s been played as its maker intended, its sound has opened up nicely.
