1997 - number 241
East Indian rosewood with attractive grain character and colour. Very nicely framed with contrasting boxwood and maple purflings.
The back and sides appear to be lacquer-finished.
European spruce of good quality as always with rosewood bridge, purflings and bindings that match those on the back and sides.
Waverly-Sloane with synthetic ivory buttons
65cm with 19 frets on an ebony fingerboard
50 mm at the nut
There are no repairs and no cracks, so it is in fine structural and performance condition.
Having been played a lot (which benefits the sound), this guitar has quite a bit of playing wear in the form of little marks, nicks and scratches to the top, some on the back and to the back of the neck. It is all quite superficial, not unsightly and has no effect on sound or the feel in your hands when playing.
This is a very pleasing and friendly guitar to play - with rounded, traditional tones, good clarity, projection and balance - all very typical of Christopher Dean concert guitars. At roughly half the price of a new one, this is a good option to have a guitar of such quality at lower outlay

"Having known Miles for many years now I can say with some authority that dealing with him is a pleasure, due largely to my secure feeling that he, like me, has a genuine love of his subject. Over the years I have always been eager to hear feedback from both Miles, and his customers, and this has helped me greatly to bolster my own passion for the guitar and to refine my work ."
