Ashley Sanders Classical Guitar #60 2015 Spruce Australian Blackwood
Here are Ashley’s comments from his own website:
Guitar #60 is now completed and ready for sale.
The specs are………650mm scale length, lowish action at 2.25mm treble and 3.25 bass at the 12th fret ( action will rise a little over time with string tension, at the moment even at this low action height there is no buzzing anywhere up and down the fretboard ), 19 frets. Australian Blackwood ( rare and only 2 sets left with dark browns and prominent fiddleback grain feature ) back/ sides and headstock, Swiss spruce top, Ebony fretboard, Blackwood bridge, East Indian Rosewood bindings, maple + redgum purflings and a mahogany neck.
Sloane tuners ( 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, removeable neck. 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 gorgeous. Her sound is powerful, crisp, clear 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. Best of 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
