1993 Gernot Wagner Spruce Maple Traditional


Gernot Wagner has clearly been a master builder for a very long time.  This guitar is a resonant beast of pure voice.  Condition is at least very good.  There are a few faint nail marks in and around the top, a string ding behind the bridge treble E string.  A professional repaired crack in the top is visible in the photos.  It is very clean, and smooth to the touch, cleated, etc.  Very stable.  I couldn’t have done a better job myself.

The action is moderately low at 3.5mm at the low E 12th fret and 3.1mm at the treble E 12th fret.  I find the guitar very easy to play, very musical and quite powerful in her voice.

The guitar was just evaluated by a very good friend of Gernot, where I was told that this is a very special guitar, very rare.  The sound exploded in his hands, coming to serious life.  I had to agree.

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio – 200808-1993 Gernot Wagner Spruce Maple Traditional – finally got around to recording this amazing guitar.  Gernot has been building at a very high level for a long time.  This guitar made me want to play it more than I had time.  The recording is long, with me just fiddling with her, getting to know her.  I simply got lost in her.  Clear and powerful, sing and voice, basses that bloom with trebles that ring.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
