German spruce and Brazilian r/wd New World Classic for sale
Sold subject to confirmation
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/ .
