Background

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.

Description

This instrument is made from aged African blackwood for the back and sides and Canadian red cedar for the soundboard. The sound is deep and warm yet clear 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. Also includes Rogers tuners.
