Have to make room in my small workshop! The two flamenca blancas that I have in my studio for sale have been significantly lowered in price. One by $1000 and the other by $500 Please head over to https://catthompsonguitars.wordpress.com/available to have a look!
Glittering bronze Sloane tuning machines with ebony knobs installed. It’ll be nut and saddle making on the weekend, a few touch-ups, set up, strings and away we go! Available for purchase by the end of next week.
Some fret crowning and near to done French polish. I think one more day of polishing still to go. After that, I’ll be letting it sit to cure, make saddle and nut, install tuning machines and final set up. Should be ready to go out the shop in a few weeks time.
Just about to start into the French polish. Engelmann spruce top, EIR back and sides, Spanish cedar neck, Macassar Ebony fingerboard, Evo Gold Frets, Sloan tuning machines. Here are a bunch of photos of the building of it.
I’ve decided to put one of my flamenco guitars up for sale with a price reduction. It is the first guitar listed on the page where a person can find a multitude of details and photos, both for this guitar and the others that I currently have available. This one is a flamenca blanca made with Canadian Cypress (aka Alaskan Yellow Cedar) back and sides, top and neck. A nice fast playing guitar. Was $3000, now $2500 USD
I’ve decided to put one of my flamenco guitars up for sale with a 25% price reduction. It is the first guitar listed on the page where a person can find a multitude of details and photos, both for this guitar and the others that I currently have available. This one is a flamenca blanca with Canadian Cypress (aka Alaskan Yellow Cedar) back and sides, top and neck. A nice fast playing guitar. Was $3000, now $2250 USD It will be at that special price until December 31.
The very first flamenco guitar that I made now has a fine home with the wonderful Carlos Gonzales and here is a video that Carlos sent me of his flamenco guitar teacher, José Poyatos playing it. Sounds amazing and I’m so happy that I can look on this when I want to think of and remember this special guitar!
As part of my trying to negotiate the rather shaky and tricky corona-influenced economic ground of late, I’ve decided to drop the price on two of my available for purchase guitars. Both are blancas and both have Canadian Cypress/Alaskan Yellow Cedar B&S. One has Canadian Cypces top and the other an Engelmann Spruce top.
Both guitars are fast and light and have a nice punchy sound to them, the all CC one especially.
Hello! I know that this page is devoted to my guitar making but at the moment I have a Tsugaru Shamisen up for sale and thought it a good idea to put it up here too as well as on my Music Forest Instruments page.
It’s been a while since i last had a shamisen up for sale. This one is made, neck (sao) and body (dou) of a very dense Thai hardwood called Mai Daeng.
Here is a video tour of the instrument. I should have one of me playing it within a few days. Please head here for details: https://musicforestinstruments.wordpress.com/shamisen-2/
