de Jonge Classical 1993 (Consignment) SOLD

Here is a beautiful Brazilian rosewood classical from Sergei de Jonge. Sometimes you get certain pieces of Brazilian rosewood that I could just stair at for hours and this is one of them. The slightly mesmerizing grain lines complement the reddish chocolate coloring and really draw the eyes!! The tone matches the look with a full and lush complexity in the bass and midrange and a soft yet commanding treble presence. Hands down excellent craftsmanship yet again from Sergei de Jonge!

Here is a beautiful classical guitar from luthier Marcus Domenelli from Victoria,
BC. This guitar features a cedar top and claro walnut back and sides, a side port, Hauser style
bracing, 12 hole bridge and a raised fretboard. This side port improves sustain and volume by
moving more air through the box and also gives the player more of the sound of the guitar. The
elevated fingerboard gives the player better access to the upper register without changing the
traditional look of the guitar. This piece is in excellent overall condition with only minor
cosmetic wear, it plays really well and sounds wonderful!
