This is my first New World Classic. Built without my usual curved top but otherwise with the soundboard design I’ve developed over the last 17 years, I was looking a guitar with my sound but a little warmer. This model will be my New World Classic.
I’m so happy with the result. It occurred to me that when I played the unamplified UK folk clubs nearly fifty years ago, I would have loved this guitar.
Jonny Moss has recorded a piece on this guitar, it can be heard at https://youtu.be/YGFhp6YfEHM. It hadn’t been played much then, it has opened up a lot since.
Built with aged German spruce, ancient Brazilian Blackwood, Indian ebony and Wengé, this is a special guitar. The Brazilian rosewood back is featured in the article ‘Joining thicknessed backs’ towards the end of ‘Brazilian rosewood for sale’ https://www.sobellguitars.com/brazilian-rosewood-for-sale/ .
