Yes,
Sasha trained in Europe in the same shop as Sebastian Stenzyl, I believe.
He builds now out of Saint Louis, and does several types of instruments
This guitar is very much reminiscent of the German builders Ober and Berg

I bought the guitar from Robin at the Guitar gallery in Nashville
She had it in her vault for 10 years, and still has some of his guitars on her website

I thought I remembered this guitar from years ago, (2003-2004). Would be an interesting guitar to try if I was nearby. I was interested in it at the time, (prior to receiving my spruce Rompre).

Thanks for kind words guys! That is correct, I started working at Munich guitar/zither shop Musik Hartwig in Aug. 1992 and soon after Sebastian Stenzel joined us. It was four of us working on the instrument buildings/repairs , Christine Wells, Martin Zirnbauer , me and Sebastian Stenzel . That was really good old times, good friends and awesome boss- Kurt Hartwig !!! , ( a heavy dose of nostalgia for me remembering it, must say... :) .........)
Now, here is the first hand report about SD 22 (which is Ron describing) ! This classical, I started indeed in Dec.1999 and it was finished in spring/summer of 2000, it's top is "light" German spruce top which I liked a lot back then...it was "noisy" piece of wood :) . The back/sides are really nice quarter sawn east Indian rosewood and the neck is made from Spanish cedar as far as I remember. The headstock veneer is east Indian ebony as well as the fret board. Nut is 53 mm, 12 th fret is 63mm. Body thickness at heel is 87 mm and at the end block is 95 mm. It is standard 650 mm scale. The inlay on the bridge and on the heel cap is genuine bone, I took inspiration from ornaments in Taj Mahal temple. Also important to mention is that interior of this guitar is as close as it gets to Torres 7 fan braced guitar where the braces are are actually old fashion triangular shaped plus V closing bar at the bottom of the lower bout! No under the bridge plate! The box has F sharp response. Unfortunately I do not remember what kind of tuner I put on, maybe Ron can help me on that? Rosette is hand made, one ring is bent at the time, and entire guitar is French polished.
Hope this can answer few questions about this SD 22 classical....boy that was 17 years ago , thanks for reading....
cheers to everybody in this forum,
Sasha Radicic, luthier

The tuners are Alessi, which I put on several years ago. I had this guitar along side a Stenzyl for many years, and they were very comparable, but the tone of this one was always superior.

Hi Sasha,

Taj Mahal is a mausoleum built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, not a temple, thanks.

Hi Rounie,
Thanks for correction from your side, you are right- Taj Mahal is mausoleum, I just did not remember appropriate word in given moment when I was replying to topic about inlay on the guitar. Appologize for my ignorance!
best
