Wilson Burnham 2017 Redwood EIRW “Pastora”


Just arrived, this guitar is another superb example of the beauty and warmth of Redwood used as a top soundboard!  Pretty, full bodied voice, easy to play.  Excellent work by the master luthier from Colorado.  Wilson’s work was intriguing and accessible price-wise to me.  Looking forward to seeing her, I was pleasantly surprised at how easily she plays, her warmth, clarity and projection.  The guitar is strung with PEPESR Vintage 1960’s strings.

He’s a character too.  Look at his photo, you can see it in his eyes!  LOL  Good guy.

This guitar is new, finished in late 2017.  The guitar is named “Pastora” for a famous Spanish Cantora.

About Wilson Burnham – “I hand craft classical guitars in a small studio outside of Allen’s Park, Colorado.

I use only hand tools and high quality woods to make my guitars. This allows me to make a guitar that has a true singing voice, one that is loud and has a large range of tonal colors and nuances.

As a classical guitar player myself, I know the joy of playing a truly wonderful guitar – one that sings, is responsive to your playing style, is easy to play with a voice that reaches the last row of seats in a recital or concert hall, and most of all, a guitar that you fall in love with so much you never want to stop playing it.

That is the kind of guitar that I make.” – Wilson Burnham



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 Audio – 180519-burnham-pastora  This is my second guitar from Wilson, named “Pastora”, again looking forward to it, as Redwood is one of my favorite tops.  I love warmth, what can I say.  This guitar has that and more all the way.  One of my favorites was from Darren Hippner, back in the day, number 305 I think.  This guitar is very mindful of that, with easy play and an oozing warmth that makes her a lot of fun to play.  The better thing about this guitar is the clarity and precision of voices.  Wilson builds a very nice guitar.  I’m very happy representing him and his guitars here on the East Coast.
