1999 Fritz Ober Spruce CSA RW Classical Guitar


Master builder Fritz Ober creations are in high demand, for obvious reasons.  Traditional build at the highest standards leaves us with a musically expressive, lyrical and handsome instrument.  The guitar has enormous presence, quality of voice, nuance and expression.  The ability to drive her is ever present as well as dialing her down to an intimacy of musicality that can leave one breathless.

Condition of the guitar is at least very good if not near excellent.  She has been around for a few years, and was played.

Well taken care of, in general, there is nothing of consequence to report, except for the slightest bit of fingernail wear, almost invisible ticks in and around the string area of the soundboard.  One tiny tick behind the bridge (treble side)  and another directly behind the D string.  The CSA rosewood looks to be in near mint condition.  There is one small stable and professionally repaired crack on the back near the waist. See photos in the gallery.  (I took these with my phone to be clear).  The guitar comes with a higher end Hard Shell Case.

The guitar is NOT eligible for transport outside of the USA.  We would prefer to sell the guitar domestically.  Please read more below for International Sales.  Thank you!  Richard



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio – 201031-Alex Romanov-1999 Fritz Ober – Tarrega Mazurka G – The owner of the guitar recorded something quick for us, Tarrega Mazurka in G – I can tell you definitively, that the guitar is an angel.  Pure and simple.

MP3 Audio – 201119-1999 Fritz Ober Spruce CSA RW – I always like to give my own take on a guitar, so, here’s my typical recording session with this guitar.  Lovely, angelic, with power and voice.

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