Christopher Dean of Kingham, Oxon.

  • Year:

    2007 - number 372

  • Body:

    South american swartzia, rosewood or machaerium. Dark and beautiful with some interesting grain features, double-lined with mahogony and with attractive purflings to both back and sides.

  • Front:

    European spruce - exceptional, really silky (which can be seen in the Bridge detail photo) and well quarter-sawn ... extraordinary quality spruce. Very dark rosewood bridge with bone framing and mother-of-pearl tie-block decoration.

  • Tuners:

    Rodgers with very attractive, engraved brass sideplates and white mother-of-pearl buttons

  • Scale:

    65cm with 20th fret for the 1st & 2nd strings on an ebony fingerboard

  • Neck Width:

    52mm at the nut

  • Weight:

    1827 grams

  • Condition:

    In original, very near-new condition and looking very handsome.

  • Comments:

    This is an immediately impressive Christopher Dean concert guitar; very handsome to look at, with superb quality materials and sound to match. The doubled sides perhaps are responsible for additional weight and strength of sound projection. The bass is warm and rich and the middle and trebles nicely-balanced with roundness and clarity. Typical of Christopher's much-admired instruments, this is a real opportunity to have one that has premium quality specification and in superb condition.

"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 ."
