2010 Sergei de Jonge Classical Guitar (consignment) SOLD

Comments This is a beautiful 2010 Sergei de Jonge classical guitar with Brazilian Rosewood back and sides and an elevated fingerboard.

Sergei de Jonge builds from his shop in Chelsea, Quebec, and has for many years been prominent in the Canadian lutherie scene; he also runs courses out of his shop, including instruction on French Polish finishes. Many small builders are moving to French Polish as it not only provides a light finish that does not seriously restrict the vibration of the instrument, but it doesn’t require a lot of equipment and much less toxic chemicals, compared to traditional spray finishing methods.

This guitar is in excellent condition, with solid 150-year old Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. The construction of the sides follow a technique pioneered by Jose Ramirez III, where the rosewood side is laminated with cypress; this provides extra strength and stiffness, better projection and clarity, while retaining the warm richness typical of Brazilian. The elevated fingerboard increases access to the upper registers, and the last fret, right at the soundhole, is a high C.
