2001 Sergei de Jonge Cutaway Steel String (consignment) SOLD

Sergei de Jonge has been building guitars for decades, since the dawn of the 1970’s, starting as one of Jean Larrivee’s very first apprentices. Over that time he has built many instruments of high quality and great sound.

The example of a 2001 Sergei de Jonge cutaway steel string demonstrates many of the qualities of Sergei’s skill. The workmanship and joinery are very good, and the design is very successful visually and tonally.

This guitar features a Sitka spruce top and Indian rosewood back and sides, with Ebony binding and bridge and a spalted maple rosette.

The Mahogany neck has an Ebony-bound Ebony fingerboard, heel cap. The head is finished off with front and back headplates of Brazilian rosewood, and a bone nut and saddle guide the strings.

The guitar has been played; there is moderate fretwear, and there are a few small marks on the top, but nothing through the finish. But it’s also been played in, and sounds very good with excellent articulation, volume and projection, and a full, rich tone with sparkling highs. The action is set to a fairly normal level, and there is lots of saddle above the bridge should adjustments be desired.
