2009 Michael Gee #561 30th Anniversary Spruce CSA


Michael Gee is clearly a superb classical guitar builder with over 30 years experience, with players all over the world capturing audiences with his creations.   This one is also very pretty, from the headstock to the woods used.  I just received this one, where I will write more when I sit down to record her, giving my straightforward thoughts.  So far so good, as she is clear voiced and resonant with easy play.

The guitar is one of four in his 2009 30th Anniversary Series, with all of his upgrades including the superb Brazilian Rosewood (CSA) and the specially designed Rodgers machines, as well as the Fitted BAM case for this particular guitar.

The guitar is in as New condition, remarkably.

Additional information about the luthier:

In 1977 after years of study Michael Gee opened his own workshop, making classical guitars. Since those early days Michael has made over 650 guitars and sent his instruments to over 20 countries around the world.

Each instrument is unique and details such as purfling are entirely hand made. Michael uses the natural colours of woods including rosewood, paduk, ebony, maple and walnut to complement the woods used in his guitars.

Machine work is kept to a minimum as Michael prefers using hand tools – feeling much more in contact and control with the materials he is using.

Many concert performers and teachers have commissioned an instrument from Michael. David Russell, Robert Brightmore, Jose Luis Gonzales, Stephan Rak, Gordon Crosskey, Stanley Yates, Earl Klugh, Hubert Kaple are amongst the many internationally renowned musicians who own and have played Michael’s guitars.

Using traditional materials of CSA and Indian rosewoods, Cedars and various Spruce woods, Michael builds concert guitars to his own design which he has carefully developed over the past 30 years with the help of many players. His guitars have been described as having exceptionally smooth and warm tone with great projection and excellent separation.
