Who is Savage Classical Guitar?

Savage Classical Guitar is one of the largest classical guitar dealer and galleries in the world. Our unique and spacious classical guitar shop is located on the South Shore of Long Island,  NY, where we take pride in offering an array of instruments that goes above and beyond even the most discerning ear.

Over the last 15 years, we have developed our reputation and our passion for curating outstanding work from the finest luthiers around the world. We have made it our purpose to find guitars of unprecedented quality and sound, bringing them together under one roof.

It is because of this, our extreme attention to detail and quality, that we only offer guitar showings on a by-appointment basis. This ensures that we are giving you the time, attention and space needed to discover a guitar that will change your relationship with music. Through this process and the unique classical guitar store we have built, we believe that we have crafted a unique experience for artists, collectors and hobbyists to find a new voice.

We believe in one simple principle: You do not choose the right guitar. The right guitar chooses you.

Kevin Aram “Gail” 2017

Rich’s Comments:

“Gail” is the last in a series of six instruments based on the guitar “Myrtle” that Kevin built for Julian Bream in 1988.  The guitar is simply superb.

About Kenneth Meyer:

Kenneth Meyer holds degrees in Music Composition and Performance from the State University of New York at Fredonia and Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degrees from the Eastman School of Music. He has served on the faculties of East Carolina University and SUNY at Fredonia and most recently held visiting professorships at the Eastman School of Music and SUNY Potsdam’s Crane School of Music.

Michael Batell #45

Gohar Vardanyan plays Manuel De Falla on this impressive guitar from Michael Batell

Rich’s Comments:

“Speaking about #45 specifically, as I spent over an hour with her this afternoon, the Hemlock woods used are very similar to Spruce, lending a very woody and complex sound and affect to the overall sonority of the guitar.  She is very gutty sounding, throaty in her mids and basses with an angelic voice in the trebles.  Very sweet sounding.  If you didn’t know better, you would not guess double top with a small lattice braced pattern within the top.  She is powerful with all the wonderful character and separation you would wish from a master luthier guitar.”
