With a nine year waiting list and significant demand in the U.S., Europe and Japan, Eric Sahlin is one of the great American luthiers who has achieved world-class status. Sahlin's guitars have been used by Scott Tennant, Andrew York, Ottmar Liebert (flamenco), Carsten Pedersen and others.
The sound of this guitar is bright and punchy with great depth and balance across all registers. Overall, tone is both full-bodied and extremely clear. Workmanship is phenomenal - to truly appreciate the perfection of the craftsmanship, it almost requires viewing with a microscope! The elegant and minimalistic use of mother-of-pearl in the headstock, rosette and tie-block give the guitar a unique and beautiful aesthetic. This is a great example built in 2001, with a huge sound that is both robust and clean. It has had a golpeador (tap-plate) applied, and does have average playing wear, but no damage, cracks or repairs of any kind.
