Sergei de Jonge Classical Guitar Natural, 1981 / *No Longer Available*


Instrument Categories: , , ,

This Sergei de Jonge Classical guitar was built during 1981 in Toronto, following de Jonge’s return to Canada from a year in Holland and creation of a new workshop.

Having learned guitar building in Toronto during the years 1969 to 1971 from Jean Larrivee and Edgar Monch via Eli Kassner, and then a year with Patt Lister in Collingwood, this de Jonge classical shows these strong influences. The top is lightly figured Sitka Spruce, the sides, back, bridge and head plate are Indian Rosewood, the body blocks and neck are Mahogany, and the fingerboard is Ebony. The tie-block trim, saddle and nut are bone. In many ways it is quite similar to Larrivee models of the time.

This example of Sergei de Jonge classical guitars is a longer scale model, at 667mm (26.26 inches) and is in overall good condition with light to moderate play wear. The top has an amount of natural lacquer checking.

As expected after 40 years of use, it has some light markings around the body and a few small marks behind the tie-block. There are some light scuffs on the back, and very light fret wear. This guitar plays well and has a powerful well-developed voice with plenty of projection.

A brown, arched top hard shell case is included.
