"El Arpa del Guerrero"

I'm very happy with the way this guitar turned out. It's really a pleasure to play; free and open with rich basses and lyrical, singing trebles.
I asked Rudolph Fuchs to send me some really light/stiff European spruce. This is one of the soundboards I received from that shipment.

"El Arpa del Guerrero" also features elegant Madagascar rosewood that I re-sawed myself about 8 years ago. I've been keeping it in my private stash until I found just the right soundboard to pair it with. This Madagascar is perfectly quarter sawn and has fine grain. Sets like these are few and far between these days. Additionally, this guitar has an interesting curly Mahogany neck that is light weight.

Aesthetic appointments include flamed maple binding, bloodwood purfling around the soundboard, and three color herringbone purfling on the back, rosette, and head. The rosette is influenced by Torres style motifs. The 12 hole bridge has 10mm MOP dots on the wings, and a matching tie block cover. The saddle is compensated.

The tuning machines are Rubner brushed silver Hauser plates with ebony knobs, black rollers, and teflon bearings.

The soundboard has 3 closed harmonic bars in the upper region, 7 fan braces, and a slanted treble bar.

The guitar is French polish everywhere with the exception of the bridge which has an oil finish (Tru Oil).

Basic plywood case included. I can also get Humicases at a very good price with a new guitar, as well as other more boutique carbon fiber cases that are flight ready.

Price breakdown-

$4,500 - Base price guitar with Romanillos plantilla
$500 - Premium Madagascar rosewood
$300 - All French Polish
$100 - Master grade European spruce
$100 - Marquetry purfling on back
$75 - Marquetry backstrip
$50 - Marquetry head inlay

Very nice work, Jason (thought I realize "words of recognition" don't pay the bills...)

:bravo:

Stunningly beautiful work as always, Jason! I have one of Jason's guitars; you simply have to see one up close to fully appreciate his mastery and they sound as wonderful as they look!

Thanks, joegun!!!

I've been trying to make some time to do a video, but I've been buried lately. I love the way this guitar sounds, and I'm anxious to show it off. I'm shooting for early next week.

I still have this guitar. Guess I could have done a better job trying to promote it, but I've been busy.

I didn't make it to have it sit in a case, so reasonable offers will be entertained. :merci:

I was asked to make a recording of this guitar yesterday, so I finally did one. The format is a little different that what I've done in the past, and it's a little off the cuff in it's presentation. It starts with some illustrations of various strings, and then a bit of Triste by Jobim followed by a some Montemayor by Torroba. The performance could be a little more polished, but you'll get the idea.
