This is a very exciting instrument that we've just received from Annette. It's our first cedar-top from her ever, and our first ever to be made with Ash for the back and sides – our "first" of this kind from any maker! To be precise, it is bi-colored European flamed ash, which Annette feels makes for a fantastic sounding (and looking) instrument. To complement this beautiful wood, she bound the top and back with rosewood bindings, and used rosewood for the bridge as well since she likes how it blends with the other materials including the darker cedar top. As good as it looks, sound is also great - it's lightly built like a feather, so has a very quick, explosive attack, and rich warm sound with a lot of body. It also has great clarity/separation of voices and a surprising amount of volume. This guitar is a second-hand instrument and does have one well-repaired crack in the soundboard. The top was also touched up with French polish leaving it in excellent condition. This is a very versatile instrument which would be suitable for any style of music, for solo playing, or in ensemble.Photos taken during construction of this guitar
