2009 - no. 291. One of the last guitars made by Rolf before his untimely death in 2009.
South american rosewood with dark, mysterious colours and attractive grain features. The sides are dark and straight-grained.
All shellac french-polished.
European spruce - a really good silky top with lots of medullary rays carrying an elegant rosette, rosewood bridge with framing to the tie-block. Shellac french-polished.
Waverly-Sloane with ivoroid buttons
64cm. 19 frets.
50 mm at the nut - helpful for smaller hands
In near-new condition - just a few tiny marks below the bridge from string changing and four or five insignificant ones in scattered places on the top. Several shallow, superficial scratches on the back of the head.
This is one of the last guitars from Rolf Eichinger before he died in September 2009.
It is a very traditionally-built, fan-strutted instrument with so may good qualities ... depth, clarity, focus, balance, rounded flexible sound... easy to play (64 scale), plenty of volume and projection. It is just a lovely, sweet instrument with fine materials and tastefully reserved decoration.
For someone looking for a 64 scale quality guitar, you can't go wrong.
