Description: Acoustic Guitar - 1998 Simon Ambridge guitar
1998 Simon Ambridge guitar.
European Spruce with dramatic "bearclaw" markings and Brazilian Rosewood back and sides. Near mint condition. While the guitar was being constructed, a crack appeared in the the highly figured rosewood on the back. Ambridge repaired and cleated it before sale. It is externally invisible and completely stable stable with normal attention to proper humidity. As insurance, I had expert Luthier, Stephen Kakos, check and reinforce it before I brought it to the dry winters of Minnesota. It has had no issues in two years here.
Before it was sold, the guitar was performed on by Luis Bonfa at Ronnie Scott's Nightclub in London.
It is a gorgeous sounding and looking guitar which justifies Ambridge's reputation for exquisite craftmanship.The sound is well balanced with great sustain.
