Redwood & Rosewood Nylon String Guitar
This guitar seems to exude a pleasing warmth, richness and balance both tonally and visually. The top was made from reclaimed redwood that was once a bridge beam from the gold rush in California. The back and sides are made from exquisite Brazilian Rosewood and accented with Paua shell perfling and highly flamed Koa binding.
