2020 Mark Usherovich Signature Cedar CSA


It is an amazingly warm, clear and vibrant instrument, and she’s still a baby.  Traditionally built, the guitar is NOT a double top.  She is 7 fans, in broad general terms, with a lateral harmonic bar, stiffeners on the sides, and smaller harmonic bars within the bass side and treble side bars.  The woods were acquired from a fellow and well established luthier in Canada by the name of de Jonge!

Mark built this traditional guitar especially for my gallery, where, as usual, I told him to build what inspires him, not any spec of mine.  This is his top build, using the finest and aged materials, with his special touch of diligence and patience to create a true work of art.  A truly excellent guitar by the young master, we are very proud to represent this fine luthier from Waterloo, Canada.

Mark brought the guitar to me personally, on Monday February 3, 2020.  I have posted a photo here on the page.  Such a wonderful man, thoughtful, engaging and most knowledgeable in all things sound and guitar.

He also brought me a Soprano Ukelele – what a fine instrument that is as well.  This is an extremely talented man with the utmost passion for h

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.

MP3 Audio  – 200205-2020 Mark Usherovich Signature Cedar CSA – a most impressive instrument from a great guy and superb luthier.  Responsiveness and clarity are exceptional.  This, coupled with projection and voice, makes her a superior traditional classical guitar in all respects.
