2013. Labelled, dated and signed by the maker.
Ziricote - of outstandingly beautiful grain pattern, with back centre-strip, maple purfling and rosewood bindings. Shellac french-polished.
Top bout:- 279 mm wide & 92 mm deep.
Waist:- 237 mm wide.
Bottom bout:- 369 mm wide & 94 mm deep.
Body length:- 489 mm.
European spruce - an absolutely beautiful front with extensive bearclaw / haselfichte figuring throughout. Very attractive geometric rosette with a centre twist motif. Rosewood bridge with 2 hole-per-string tie system and mother-of-pearl framed tieblock cap.
Waverly-Sloane with ebony buttons.
65cm with 19 frets on an ebony fingerboard.
51.5 mm at the nut - which has individual string cut-backs for compensated tuning. Personally I find these guitars have superb neck shape and depth for playing comfort.
In very near-new condition. The front has a string slip mark below the 1st string. Apart from that you have to look quite hard to find tiny marks.
All shellac french polished to very high standard.
This is a stunningly beautiful instrument, with the ziricote back & sides and bearclaw spruce front. The design and craftsmanship are truly excellent.
The sound is equally impressive with creamy, smooth, singing trebles and a rich bass and middle. A really musical guitar; delightful to look at and with the strength and warmth of sound that so many people search for. Outstanding value from this talented maker.

"The close relationship Miles Roberts has with us, the makers, results in producing some quite special and unique instruments that we otherwise would not have made. Knowing more about music than the average maker, and understanding our trade better than most guitarists, Miles is the perfect bridge between the two. I am proud to have my instruments promoted and sold by Kent Guitar Classics. Lo stretto rapporto che Miles ha con noi liutai ci permette di realizzare strumenti speciali che probabilmente non faremmo altrimenti. Con una migliore conoscenza della musica che molti liutai e della liuteria che molti chitarristi, Miles è il perfetto mediatore tra i due. Sono molto contento che i miei strumenti siano offerti da Kent Guitar Classics."
