2010 Petros Grand Concert

$9,265
This Petros is immensely satisfying to play, especially if you’re of the fingerstyle persuasion and you need crisp note separation and string-to-string balance. Built in 2010, this GC is still quite new, but has already opened up a lot thanks to the loving ministrations of its previous owner (he wore down the original EVO frets, so we just refretted it with EVO for another round of music)....

Sweet trebles and smooth playability are the name of the game when it comes to our 2016 CX from Tony Vines. The classic combo of Indian Rosewood and Cedar gives the bass and mids an extra warm boost, and the voice overall has a lively energy to it that translates well into altered tunings.

2012 Barthell, John Peter Concert

$2,570
A lovely 2012 Concert Classical from John Peter Barthell in Cocobolo and Red Cedar.

1985 Greven White Lady

$12,870
Few milestones are quite so handsome as John Greven’s #500 White Lady.

2015 Lowden S35

$5,145
Lowden’s midsize S body, here in Claro Walnut and Cedar, offers the right amount of warmth for a fingerstyle approach but not at the cost of projection and bark for flatpicking.

You don’t find that every day in a smaller guitar, but this Lowden manages to defy expectations left and right.Number four in...
