    2009 - Model 40, number 206. Labelled, signed and dated by the maker.

  • Body:

    Rosewood - mainly quarter-sawn timber with pleasing colour graduation. The back is without centre-decoration so the eye is drawn to the beauty of the wood.

  • Front:

    European spruce - a really beautiful, ambered top with lots of medullary rays showing it to be well-quarter-sawn and with a small amount of bearclaw figuring. A really beautiful rosette with matching purflings and very elegant rosewood bridge.

    Rodgers with engraved brass sideplates and white mother-of-pearl buttons.

    65cm with 19 frets on an ebony fingerboard

  • Neck Width:

    51mm at the nut with 43 mm string spacing.

  • Weight:

    1443 grams

  • Condition:

    In excellent condition - with just the tiniest of little marks if you look very closely - otherwise looks as new.

  • Comments:

    The physical beauty of Simon Ambridge guitars hits you the moment you open the case. The choice of materials for the details and the supreme level of craftsmanship is very striking. With a body resonance between E and F, the sound is therefore deep and somewhat Hauser-like, yet with singing, sweet trebles that are well in balance balance with the bass.
    All round this is just a lovely guitar where the quality of the materials, craftsmanship, playability and sound all come together in a refined and handsome concert guitar.
