I unfortunately have to part with my 2006 Kolya Panhuyzen guitar due to financial reasons- only.
It is an absolutely beautiful guitar: cedar top with Indian Rosewood back and sides (see photos), elevated fingerboard, 20th fret, etc. This guitar comes with Alessi tuning machines and hardcase (included).
Guitar only shows minimal signs of wear from use, and has absolutely no cracks. Just a few tiny nail dings and scratches around the sound-hole, but not visible until very close inspection.
The tone is rather warm and deep, with rich bass and exceptionally even, and well-sustaining trebles. The neck is shaped for comfort, and it feels great to touch. The elevated fingerboard enhancement is twofold: while it's providing the easy access to the higher positions, it's also creating a string angle for better action and quicker tone response, as well as the longer sustain. Kolya Panhuyzen is one of the very few top luthiers building traditional fan-braced constructed guitars for several decades.
