Open Classical At Buon Giorno Coffee

If you like open-mic, I highly recommend the Open Classical at Buon Giorno Coffee in Fort Worth.  I was lucky enough to get some press by showing up with my latest guitar and giving it a 15 minute workout on stage!  StarTelegram2Yes I played and was later interviewed for the Star Telegram.  It is a great venue with some real talent giving their best vocals, guitar solos and more!

Cedar/Spruce Double Top w/Southeast Asian Rosewood Back & Sides

#201312

This double top model is the sister guitar to the spruce cedar double top I built a few months ago. The soundboard is constructed of cedar on top and spruce underneath. This is the first guitar I have built using Southeast Asian Rosewood for the back and sides, which has been said to rival Brazilian Rosewood in sound quality. I am happy to say this guitar has remarkable sound qualities and projection and yet it still maintains a traditional cedar top sound. This is a great guitar for even the most demanding musician who wants a concert guitar or is in need of a guitar for competitions. This sound is complimented by the details built into the body from the ebony bindings to the wheat motif specially made for this model. I used laminated sides, which give the guitar more focus, project the sound toward the audience, and give it a quick response for the player. She is a pleasure to play. Take a look at the photo gallery in the link provided below.
Price with case: SOLD!

To hear how the guitar sounds start the media player below: Leo Brouwer, Etude VI, performed by Aaron Ringo.
