2008 David Whiteman SP/SW
|Back & Sides:
This is perhaps the most beautiful guitar we've seen to date from this fine British maker. David Whiteman built this instrument for a major UK guitar exhibition that celebrated 40 years of British guitar making and ran for several months at the beginning of this year. It is precisely constructed and handmade using the finest materials, including beautiful and rare Columbian satinwood for the back and sides, and European spruce for the soundboard. It also features hand-made tuning machines by David Rodgers. The sound is full and rich, with exceptional clarity, and big projection. Whiteman's guitars are also known for their balance, sustain, and firm, even response. An exceptional guitar by all standards.
