Mark Usherovich ‘Active’ Doubletop Classical, 2018 (No Longer Available)


Instrument Categories: , ,

Presented here is an exquisite classical guitar by Mark Usherovich, meticulously crafted in June 2018. This ‘Active’ model showcases a stunning double top and double back design. Notably, this instrument boasts exceptional responsiveness and a resounding volume, accentuated by its richly developed tonal quality—a testament to its extensive playtime. Usherovich guitars are a rare find due to the meticulous hand production process, which results in limited availability as the skilled luthier is fully committed with a substantial backlog of orders.

This guitar is built in the Spanish style with a ‘Slipper heel’ joint for the Spanish Cedar neck and Pau Ferro bridge, sides and outer back layer; the inner layer is Spruce. The double top is Spruce and Cedar with a wooden core. The fingerboard and head plate are Ebony, and the tuners are excellent Gotoh models.

The finish is a natural shellac French Polish, and shows a fair amount of wear in contact areas of the top.

This Mark Usherovich ‘Active’ model guitar has just been serviced at The Twelfth Fret Repair shop, receiving a fret dress and setup; it plays well and is ready to go!

The original tweed hard shell case was made by TKL, and shows clear signs of being used as intended. The handle has been replaced by a strap.

The Mark Usherovich ‘Active’ model is one of his most requested. New examples have a year waiting list, and carry a price of about $12,000 USD.
