Description

This 1994 is an absolutely stunning example of Sahlin's finest work from this period. Rich, clean and incredibly powerful, the tone projects with great separation and color. It is lightly but solidly built giving it a lively character. As is evident in the aesthetic details, Sahlin's craftsmanship is second to none, and features beautiful inlay work, perfectly executed. Condition is excellent with one very minor crack at the extremity of the treble-side, upper bout (just millimeters from the purfling), repaired internally with glue. Soundwise, this guitar has a very big sound with particularly strong trebles that really "pop". This guitar also features Sahlin's famous slight "twist" to the neck profile, which eases the stress on the left hand wrist in the lower positions, allowing the player to keep a straighter, less "bent" wrist position even when barring. One of the most ergonomically well thought-out designs we've seen. Overall, a solid concert instrument in every regard.
