NEW Kolya Panhuyzen Spruce/Lattice braced
Top: Spruce/Lattice Braced
Back and sides: Macassar Ebony
Kolya and I discussed this guitar at length and decided on a Spruce Lattice braced guitar with stunning Macassar Ebony back and sides. Kolya suggested a 20th half fret, and Baljak tuners as well. The guitar is gorgeous.
This instrument is powerful and focused and very clear and precise, very articulate! She is extremely well balanced and has the dynamic range we all love in modern lattice/double top guitars. A lovely Spruce voice already more open that you might anticipate in a new Spruce guitar, and she will unfold quickly as lattice and double tops tend to do.
I am very selective as you know about the luthiers I work with, and when it comes to lattice guitars I have only found those of Jim Redgate, Philip Woodfield, Greg Byers, Smallman, and Thomas Humphrey to perform at the very highest level. I am very pleased to add Kolya to that elite list.
