February 2017 Blog Updates Savage Classical Guitar

Happy February 2017.  A whole month has gone by in a seeming blink of an eye.  So many great things are happening.  Also, not so great, as in…we’re working on CITES master file for the US Fish & Wildlife Service Management Office.  Inventory check for the end of the year and paperwork being filed in that regard as well.  Administration is tough.  There’s so much beautiful stuff here, but it all needs to be cataloged for various reasons and outside agencies, including insurances.  Yikes!  OK, that’s the bad stuff.

Good stuff is our own line of Signature Savage Classical Guitar strings are being developed.  Like myself, I keep things simple, Normal Tension, High Tension and Low Tension.  3 choices, simple.

Great guitars keep coming through our doors and it’s all about the guitar here in our gallery.  Our location in Bohemia has really taken shape, I work on things here constantly, tweaking and refining.  Such a wide open and comfortable space.  I really love it here.

We have also arranged for client financing through PayPal Credit.  In essence, they are offering you a 6 month loan Interest Free if paid within that time period.  Loan terms seem favorable as well, for those needing longer than 6 months to pay down the financing.  It’s a great option, one that might open the door to a special instrument you might have your eyes on.

Nicolo Alessi is sending a complete re-supply of tuning machines to the gallery.

Gotoh machines are being ordered as well.

Additionally, a slew of luthiers are in the queue, preparing and sending guitars to us in the gallery.  I will update as appropriate when the time comes.

I’ve also arranged for a number of players to come to Savage Classical Guitar to perform Video work, demonstrating various guitars of the 250 or so concert instruments we have available.  They will be arriving from the various universities around the area, where I’ve finally found the time to connect with the great professors and fill out our roster of players to help us with this important aspect of the gallery for your pleasure and convenience.  It’s another way of me saying, I’m tired of hearing myself, we needs some new blood in the gallery.

Saying all of that, our selection of quality classical guitars is unprecedented.  I personally approve every guitar that comes across my threshold.  If a guitar is not up to standard, it is sent back.  I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy a visit to my shop, appreciating the wide selection, where I trust and hope that you will find your perfect guitar.  Enjoy.

My best, always!  Rich – call me at 631-335-5447   – my personal email is here

Douglass Scott 2017 Cedar with Bosnian Maple

By | Blog, Latest From Rich, Uncategorized | No Comments

Douglass Scott and I have been working together for a while.  His guitars are simply superb.  He just wrote to me today to let me know about the next guitar he’s building for Savage Classical Guitar.  A Western Red Cedar top with Bosnian Maple Back & Sides, featuring a Macassar Ebony strip down the middle of the back.  Fingerboard will also be Macassar ebony to match the back, bindings will be regular black ebony. Head stock, bridge and purfling lines are Amazon rosewood. As per Douglass, ” Will look cool I think and should sound really nice too. Also will have sound port with cover and elevated fingerboard. ”  I agree.  Look at the raw shots below.  Sweet!

  • A 2007 Enrico Bottelli has arrived, (the last one sold inside of a week, I believe).  This one is #217 Spruce/CSA

  • Cordoba Torres and Hauser models are being ordered
  • Gotoh Machines are being ordered – premium and 40G2000 series

Classical Guitar Updates September October & November 2016 at Savage Classical Guitar

Hi All,

Heck, I might as well have said updates from September to the end of the year?

Hope you’re all good and things are going well.  I continue to be busy, actually busier than I’ve ever been.  So much inventory, space, and the work that goes along with it.  It’s a good thing, but I think I need more help now, more than ever.  Me and Dan are doing an incredible amount of work.  I spend 10-16 hours a day in the shop.  The good news?  The place is cranking now.   Some beautiful guitars keep coming my way, which is good for you as our selection is wide open and pricing is competitive.  Still running a Fall Sale allowing you 10% off additionally, even from a given Sale Price.  It’s a really good time to buy one of our classical guitars that have been sitting around a little too long.

OK, now it’s a Xmas Sale  use code “xmas2016” to save 10% additional on already lowered (sale) prices.  Good thru Jan 2, 2017

Call me anytime.  Our selection of quality classical guitars is unprecedented.  I personally approve every guitar that comes across my threshold.  If a guitar is not up to standard, it is sent back.  I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy a visit to my shop, appreciating the wide selection, where I trust and hope that you will find your perfect guitar.

OK, so this blog post is going longer than I wanted.   I’m so busy, I don’t have time to make another page.  Just updating what’s already here and take it through the end of the year.  Ugh, not enough time.  LOL

My best, always!  Rich – call me at 631-335-5447   – my personal email is here

  • 09-05-2016 – Something went bad with the recordings post-production, meaning I have to re-do at least 4, and probably a few more.  I’ll get to it today and tomorrow.
    • All done with recording, though I may go back and re-do a few that I’m not too happy with overall.
  • 09-12-2016 – All photos are up to date.  Measurements of 9 guitars were also updated.  Only have to record 2 guitars.  We’re keeping up to date?  Weird.  LOL
  • Last day of the Summer Sale runs through Tuesday at midnight!  “summer2016” is the code for an extra 10% off any listed guitar in that category.  Very nice
  • 09-14-2016 – Two GV Rubio Hausers showed up at the same time?  Weird, but hey, nice guitars!
  • 09-15-2016 – Finally!   Got my original recording setup back.  Nicey nice
  • 09-16-2016 – A long day in the shop today, appointments, recordings, updates, website, etc.  Fixed my Directions page to reflect the Google Maps correctly and tightened up some of the driving directions.
  • 09-18-2016 – We are working very hard on a re-design of the web site – more user friendly, cleaner lines with the ability to administrate the site quickly and safely from the back end.

Classical Guitar Updates July-August 2016 at Savage Classical Guitar

Hi All,

Hope you’re all good and things are going well.  I continue to be busy, shop is purring.  The new gallery/shop is crazy good, but my goodness, so much work to be done.  I’m not even close.  Then, of all things, I’m renovating my home at the same time?  Are you kidding me?  People say I’m smart.  I say, “prove it”.  ha

I’m also in the final stages of completion of my own line of guitars, under the Savage Classical Guitar label, handmade and built in Spain by the master luthiers of Manuel Adalid.  I’m keeping it simple, with 2 models in both Spruce & Cedar – Gorgeous Madrid-style concert guitars that will be priced reasonably, cuz that’s how I roll!  🙂   In the meantime….

I am in discussions with a number of excellent luthiers from the US and Canada, where their superb work will be available here in my gallery shortly.  Very exciting.

Call me anytime.  Our selection of quality classical guitars is unprecedented.  I personally approve every guitar that comes across my threshold.  If a guitar is not up to standard, it is sent back.  I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy a visit to my shop, appreciating the wide selection, where I trust and hope that you will find your perfect guitar.

My best, always!  Rich – call me at 631-335-5447   – my personal email is here

Updates

07-03-2016 – Large order from Manuel Adalid coming in, including the line Savage Classical Guitar Models 05 & 10 in Spruce and Cedar.   This should be fun!

07-10-2016 – I ended up finding a gallery space in Bohemia, NY.  385 Central Ave.  I’ve been working for 3 weeks straight on getting the place in order.  Far from it, it’s been a fun journey so far.  Getting a little tired now and have fallen behind on admin work for the site and the guitars.  Back on the horse this Monday, ordering, photography, listings, etc.  Summer sale will begin this week.  Dan and I are working on it!

I’ll also be running a Summer Sale on Select Instruments that will deduct another 10% off the already listed Sale Price.  This will definitely be the time to jump on a guitar if you’ve had your eye on one already.

07-12-2016 – Max Sipe sent me his GFA showcase guitar.  OMG, she’s beautiful.  Her voice and power are exceptional as well.

07-21-2016 – Spent time on the phone with a number of incredible luthiers.  Ned Milburn of Nova Scotia – a clearly talented luthier and Wilson Burnham of Boulder, Colorado another talented man.  There are many others that are coming on board with me and this is something I’m quite happy about, where luthiers are seeking me out.  The new gallery, my own work ethic and moral center have combined for a great business model that is starting to hit another gear.   Loving it, love my job, love helping people find a great guitar.  Awwww  🙂

07-26-2016 – A large order of Nicoló Alessi tuning machines have been placed, including Mandolin machines Style A and F – should all be here by late August

Classical Guitar Updates May – June 2016 at Savage Classical Guitar

Hi All,

Hope you’re all good and things are going well.  I continue to be busy, shop is purring.  Looking for a new, expanded gallery space as I have run out of room here, and a long time ago at that.  I’ve been looking since last September of 2015, with little luck.  I’ve decided that I am going to buy some commercial land and build my own place.  Studio, lesson rooms, gallery setting, retail shop, upscale and gorgeous.  I’ll be moving somewhere temporarily, while the search for land is on-going.  It might take a year, but it’s going to happen, unless I find a great spot tomorrow.  It’s time, and it’s been time for a long while. I’ll write more when I know more.

I’m also in the final stages of completion of my own line of guitars, under the Savage Classical Guitar label, handmade and built in Spain by the master luthiers of Manuel Adalid.  I’m keeping it simple, with 2 models in both Spruce & Cedar – Gorgeous Madrid-style concert guitars that will be priced reasonably, cuz that’s how I roll!  🙂   In the meantime….

Call me anytime.  Our selection of quality classical guitars is unprecedented.  I personally approve every guitar that comes across my threshold.  If a guitar is not up to standard, it is sent back.  I guarantee you will thoroughly enjoy a visit to my shop, appreciating the wide selection, where I trust and hope that you will find your perfect guitar.

My best, always!  Rich – call me at 631-335-5447   – my personal email is here

04-29-2016 – Felipe Conde of the great Conde family of Madrid, graced me with a visit today, bringing one of his latest Flamenco Negra models with him.  Beautiful and graceful work, snap and pop on the guitar, excellent voicing and presence.  I’ll have a listing on Monday, with photos.

05-02-2016 – Photography and spec listing was done for the new Felipe Conde Flamenco Negra #11 that Felipe personally brought to me.

05-03-2016 – I’m just now getting to the recording of over 22 guitars that need MP3s.  You can see the list below under Recordings – send more help!!!  Yikes (Ha…almost done…almost.  1 or 2 guitars to go!)

05-04-2016 – a Pre-Owned Max Sipe is en route, from 2014.  Max builds a super guitar.  I had this guitar here almost 2 years ago, and she was great.  Supposed to be in excellent condition.  Received and she is quite nice.  Some honest smallish playing wear on the top, as expected, but seriously nice guitar, priced right!

05-05-2016 – Updated Bios are available for a number of luthiers, including Matt Rubendall and Max Cuker – under About – Luthiers

05-09-2016 – Flights and accommodations are set for the GFA in Denver…be nice to see everyone, and to be seen?  LOL

05-13-2016 – Photo shoot for the Pre-Owned Max Sipe 2014 was done, along with a number of Kenny Hill Player Series guitars that needed to be updated.

05-20-2016 – Kenny Hill has sent me a new Performance Spruce 650mm and a Performance Spruce 630mm Small Body – both excellent guitars.  Photo shoot on Monday, the 23rd, recording etc.  Stay tuned!?  LOL – Photos are complete.  You can find the links below

05-23-2016 – Giannis Paleodimopolous wrote to me last night, saying that his guitar is ready for shipping, just waiting on a form fitted case (HSC) to accommodate the arched back.  Giannis builds a superior guitar with deep basses and singing trebles.  Incredible power with sing in the voice is very rare indeed.  The guitar is configured with Spruce and CSA.  The link above has the full specs, which G was kind enough to provide.

05-26-2016 – Final arrangements have been made to bring Kim Lissarrague to the shop.  Another great Australian builder, I’m looking forward to seeing his guitar.  Guitar has arrived and she is sweet!

05-27-2016 – New Spruce guitar from the very talented Michael Cadiz arrived

05-28-2016 – Giannis Paleodimopolous has completed the guitar for my shop.  He sounds excited, which means I’m the same.  Should be here within a week

06-03-2016 – Mikhail Robert is sending me his latest concert guitar with Maple back and sides.  He’s building now out of pure passion, when he wants to build, and how he wants to do it!  How awesome is this guitar going to be?  This falls exactly in line with my requisites for a builder…build what inspires you.  I have never specified anything to a builder.  Build what you like, build what inspires you, and I’m fairly certain it will be fantastic.  I haven’t been wrong yet.

06-05-2016 – Kenny Hill has sent me a 7/8th size 630 scale Performance in Spruce #3932 – lovely and powerful classical guitar.

06-06-2016 – a Jean Rompré from 2012 has arrived.  In good condition, more importantly, she has some voice and power.  Photos and listing in the next 2 days.

06-08-2016 – Robert Vincent has sent a Cedar concert model my way.  #172 – Cedar w/Ebony back & sides, one of my favorite combos.  Robert is so very talented and committed to building very fine classical guitars.

06-09-2016 – A Jeremy Clark is en route.  Very nice!

06-09-2016 – a pre-owned Robert Vincent is en route as well as a Richard Prenkert.

06-15-2016 – Rene Baarslag pre-owned entered the shop.  Granada luthier from Holland.  This guitar is ridiculously good.  Easy to play and sounds like a dream.

06-17-2016 – A good day as Manuel Adalid and Carlos Quiros Rodriguez are coming to the shop to visit.  A number of guitars have arrived as well in the past day.  A beautiful specimen from Richard Prenkert – Monica Esparza – GV Rubio Estudio – Jean Rompré #148 and #149 (spectacular) – Manuel Adalid Torres Especial – a few more I really can’t recall at the moment.  The shop is overrun with guitars.  Gallery space almost chosen?  I’m having a tough time picking a spot.  Cost, space and appropriateness are all issues, but I need to move.  I am out of space where the guitars are running 3 and 4 deep now.  How did this happen?  Ha, I’m very good at what I do 🙂

07-03-2016 – Large order from Manuel Adalid coming in, including the line Savage Classical Guitar Models 05 & 10 in Spruce and Cedar.   This should be fun!

07-10-2016 – I ended up finding a gallery space in Bohemia, NY.  385 Central Ave.  I’ve been working for 3 weeks straight on getting the place in order.  Far from it, it’s been a fun journey so far.  Getting a little tired now and have fallen behind on admin work for the site and the guitars.  Back on the horse this Monday, ordering, photography, listings, etc.  Summer sale will begin this week.  Dan and I are working on it!

I’ll also be running a Summer Sale on Select Instruments that will deduct another 10% off the already listed Sale Price.  This will definitely be the time to jump on a guitar if you’ve had your eye on one already.  Details this coming weekend of June 20th.  Stay Tuned!  🙂
