This is a Giannini classical guitar built in 1977, the top will be replaced as well as a fret job. Seems hard to believe these babies were built with Brazilian rosewood, which is considered the holy grail of guitar woods. They really have a full and big sound, even though the top is laminated spruce, either way, cool guitar!
This is a guitar for my good friend Todd Rheins. The top is Western red cedar, the back and sides are walnut, the neck is Mahogany with laminated woods consisting of Mahogany and Maple. The fingerboard and bridge are made from Ebony that was salvaged from an old upright bass fingerboard.
• Snakewood for the rosette, end graft and the snake on the inlay which also has Spalted Maple and Pearl.
• Tortoise tuner buttons and bridge pins tie everything together....
This guitar is very light in weight and also comfortable to play due the Ebony arm bevel, and sounds great!
This guitar body is Cocobolo which is a very oily wood and hard to glue. The top is Port Orford Cedar, the appointments are made from snakewood, blackwood and abalone shell. Some of the most beautiful woods I have ever seen!
