Jack Sanders – Baroque Guitar


Jack Sanders just finished building a new baroque guitar for himself to take on tour, so we thought it would be fun to have him play it for us and explain a bit about how it works. This particular instrument is built after a Stradivarius guitar, though some of the woods are different. Jack plays Españoletas and Folias by Gaspar Sanz.

Rupert Boyd plays Cleveland Collection


Australian-born guitarist Rupert Boyd was in town and stopped by to record on some Cleveland Collection guitars. Here he is playing Piazzolla’s Otoño Porteño on a 1976 Miguel Rodriguez ‘Churchdoor’, Skye Boat Song on the 1935 Hauser I, and Phillip Houghton’s Kinkachoo, I Love You on Segovia's 1969 Jose Ramirez.

Scott Tennant and Segovia’s Ramirez


When Scott Tennant came by to play some of the Cleveland Collection guitars late last year, he more or less fell in love with the Segovia's 1969 Ramirez. When he told us he was about to record a CD of Segovia’s compositions we all had a Eureka moment and realized he had to record the CD using this guitar.
