I offer several classical models after the works of Torres/Hauser, Robert Bouchet, Miguel Rodriguez Sr. and Ignacio Fleta. I also make a flamenco model after Marcelo Barbero.
Any classical model that I make with standard appointments would include a choice of Engelmann Spruce or Western Red Cedar for the top and East Indian Rosewood or Curly Big Leaf Maple for the back and sides. The neck would be Spanish Cedar or Mahogany, with an Ebony fingerboard, Brazilian Rosewood bridge, and solid wood bindings and purfling. A plush arch top hard shell case is included in the price. Options having to do with scale length, nut width, neck size and feel are, of course, included at no charge. You may wish to upgrade or customize your instrument.
The base price for all my guitars is $4,800.00 with the exception of Harpguitars and ukes. I require a $300.00 deposit to be on the waiting list which is first come first served. When I start construction I ask for one third down, deposit can applied to this amount, and balance upon completion. I try to deliver your project in 4-5 months from the time I start construction. Cancellation at any time forfeits deposit.
