Here are Ashley’s comments from his own website:

“I have just completed the body on guitar #67 and will get back to completing the neck and polishing after Christmas. Completion possibly early March 2020.

Back and sides are rich, dark East Indian rosewood, the top is master grade cedar. I’ve made some rather major changes on this guitar, all due to the recent trip to Spain. One of which is to lighten things up and to move away from the heavier Australian lattice build, something that is directly attributed to the guitars made in the traditional way, guitars that can produce tone that stirs the soul.

One of my motto’s has been small incremental changes only, but I feel that I’m past that stage in my building as I’m very familiar with my guitar and build methods, to the point of endless repetition. Thankfully I stepped away from that mindset and have surged forward on this one, which if nothing else has renewed my interest in what I can achieve, and hopefully will realize what I am hoping to create.”

Deluxe Rubner tuners with bearings on the rollers ( each roller has a bearing at the plate end and at the end of the roller, thus two bearings per roller, which gives the smoothest and most controllable string adjustment I’ve seen so far ), adjustable truss rod. The entire guitar is French polished with a cross linking shellac that is far more resistant to sweat and humidity. The strings are Knobloch “Actives”  double silver in a medium tension.  The guitar is housed in a top of the line Hiscox Artist Case.

The guitar is gorgeous.  Her sound is powerful, crisp, clear and warm, buttery, with beautiful sustain.  Action is low yet drive-able.  The man knows his neck and body angles.

The woods are ridiculously beautiful.  Ashley, again and again, goes way out of his way to create the most beautiful and luscious sounding guitars.  Certainly among the best from Australia, hands down.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?).  My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar.  I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything.  Thanks. Rich


MP3 Audio211130-2020 Ashley Sanders 67 Cedar EIRW Lattice – Apologies, any hum you may hear is coming from the humidifiers in the gallery.  An amazing guitar, with power, voice, highs and lows.  Pretty too!  The modified Australian lattice tending toward the more traditional is a special affect that has much merit, in my professional opinion.  The nasal quality associated with lattice braced guitars is noticeably subdued or non-existent, lending a rich, velvety texture to the musical experience.
