Thomas Malapanis Classical Guitar 2005 Spruce Cocobolo


Just arrived, I will write more as I know more, but her sound is exquisite.  She is in good condition, repaired and setup by Douglas Ching of Virginia.  His guitar new, is $10,000 – I’d say this is a very good deal on an excellent guitar.  The Cocobolo is in excellent shape.  The Spruce top has honest playing wear in and around the rosette.  There is a repaired crack in the Spruce, lower bout, parallel to the treble side of the bridge.  Stable, no movement, repaired properly.  Of course, she is priced accordingly.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended


MP3 Audio – 160903-malapanis-29 – Bold and direct, clear and vibrant, she has sing in her voice with beautiful complexity.  Set up moderately, she can be driven as a concert instrument should be or let’s say, can be driven.  Really nice, I played and recorded her longer than I meant to do, she was that enjoyable.
