European spruce - High quality with stacks of medullary figure showing. Very attractive geometric rosette with a centre twist motif. Rosewood bridge with 2 hole-per-string tie system
Waverly-Sloane with ebony buttons.
52mm 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.
All shellac french polished to very high standard
Pictures to follow when the guitar is available What beautiful looking instruments! - from this luthier who studied for a while under Paco Santiago Marin. Design and craftsmanship are truly excellent. The ziricote for this guitar body was from the same plank as one made by Antonio Marin Montero during 2008. Creamy, smooth sound, singing trebles and with excellent balance, clarity and sustain. Really musical guitars which are delightful to look at and are destined to be fine intruments when fully played in. Outstanding value from a talented young maker. A maker to watch out for - prices bound to rise as his reputation spreads

"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."
