G.W. Barry Concert Custom Sold

You’re an accomplished guitarist who has been playing for quite some time. You’ve owned a number of good guitars over the years … all of them did the job but none were exactly what you wanted. It sounds to me like it is time to order that guitar-of-a-lifetime from a veteran luthier … someone with a proven track record of consistently creating exceptional sounding instruments. This was the start of the thought process that led one of our regular customers to order a truly custom guitar from long-time professional luthier G.W. Barry.

G.W. Barry Concert Engelmann/ Hawaiian Koa Sold

OK, you’re stranded on a desert island … what guitar do you want there with you? Well there is pretty stiff competition to say the least, with all of the talented luthiers out there. So what is the criteria? Personally speaking, I want something with staying power … a guitar that I won’t get sick of looking at … a musical instrument with many layers of sound … that reacts differently with every subtle variation in pick or finger attack … something that when you wrap your hand around its neck and start playing, just takes you away to a different place.

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!
