❌SOLD❌ Marc Beneteau Classical Guitar Spruce and Rosewood, 1998


Instrument Categories: , ,

Here we have a very nice Marc Beneteau Classical guitar with Sitka Spruce top and Indian Rosewood back and sides, built in the Beneteau shop in St. Thomas Ontario during 1998.

Built in a modern style, this Marc Beneteau classical model uses a Sitka Spruce top paired with Indian Rosewood for the sides and back. The body blocks and neck are Mahogany and importantly, the neck joint uses a bolt construction rather than the traditional Spanish ‘Slipper Heel’ design. This makes the guitar much more repairable, without seriously affecting tone. The fingerboard is Ebony while the bridge and head plate are Rosewood.

This guitar has been used over the years, and the lacquer finish has naturally sunk. The top has a number of wear marks from playing, and there is a small dark area on the bass side of the rosette, which appears to be under the finish. Still, it plays well and has a well-developed voice.

A brown hard shell case is included.

More From The Builder On The Beneteau Flamenco Guitar History And Aims

“Since the first year when I opened my shop in Ottawa, Ontario and until now, I can honestly say that it’s been my passion to understand the mystery and intricacies of building the perfect acoustic guitar — it just hasn’t wavered. This pursuit ensures that each instrument is hand made with attention to detail, using only the finest tonewoods and the accumulated skills that only years of experience can bring. Building custom guitars is a unique process filled with variance and nuance. Working alone, I carefully ensure the highest standards are observed every step of the way.

Realizing the build of a custom guitar is very much a collaborative project between builder and player, I welcome the opportunity to work with you in turning your dream into reality. Personal service has long been an important part of my approach and I fully appreciate the fact that a satisfied customer is the best possible advertising.”
