Classical Ergonomic Guitar

Previously owned, 2005

This guitar was built during my studies in Markneukirchen, and it represents the third prototype of my research on ergonomic modifications.

The instrument had previously been loaned to a young promising artist for one year, and it did incur some minor wear on the finish. There is also a drying crack in the top, which will be splinted and retouched before selling the instrument. Since this guitar was originally built in Germany, I recommend to store it in an environment having a relative humidity above 50% r.h. at all times.

Also, the entire string setup will be reviewed before shipping, so that the playability of this guitar is equal to that of a new instrument.

(In case the Soundcloud player above does not work, you can find an audio sample here.)

I can perform minor tailoring to the buyer’s needs before shipping, such as adjusting the action at a desired height or changing the string spacing at the nut. If any questions remain, please send me an email or call me at +1 (204) 869-0607.
