NK Forster Model C Guitar (2007)


  • Slate Brazilian rosewood back & sides
  • You may ask, "what is slate Brazilian"?  Nigel says, "It looks and feels like slate rather than wood. It's super hard rosewood. It's from the same stash that we made all of Martin Simpson's guitars from when I worked for Stefan in the 90s."
  • Fine, German Spruce top, which has a wonderful golden hue
  • Venetian cutaway
  • Ebony fretboard with Gold EVO frets
  • Brazilian rosewood headstock faceplate
  • Gold Gotoh 510 tuning machines
  • 1908 Cuban Mahogany neck with elegant Indian rosewood backstrap. Not only does this look fantastic, but it is much stronger. It is   long grain covering the most fragile part of the guitar
  • Attractive "slant check" purfling from Germany, encircles the top
  • The rosette is comprised of 2 "slant check" circles with a beautiful blue BirdsEye Maple strip sandwiched between
  • Tulip wood bindings
  • Ebony bridge with Ebony bridge pins
  • Nigel, like Stefan Sobell, does not use a wood filler when he finishes his guitars. This creates a cool effect on the guitar body, and allows the finish to sink into the wood, instead of lying on top of it.
  • The tone is smooth and inspiring. Harp-like. The trebles glisten.
  • Custom fit Calton case from England (wine exterior with wine interior) included in our price of $15,000.
  • This is an extraordinary opportunity to obtain an exquisite guitar from Nigel, and Brazilian rosewood at that. He is not exporting anymore rosewood guitars of any kind.
  • A Free copy of Nigel Forster's Book, "Between the Ideal and the Possible" included.
