Michael Bashkin Acoustic Guitars

I have been an admirer of Micheal's work for many years. I am delighted to announce that I will be representing him.

Michael says; My love of acoustic guitar building grew out of my interest in wood. I began building guitars in 1994 during my graduate studies in forestry at Colorado State University. While subsequently teaching tropical forestry in Belize, Central America, I took the opportunity to hand select many of the unique woods which are featured in my guitars. Along the way, I had the opportunity to study with noted luthiers Ervin Somogyi and Harry Fleishman. My approach to acoustic guitar-building, emphasizing a seamless connection between aesthetics and functionality, has been influenced by the work of both these master builders. In 1998, I opened my shop in Fort Collins, Colorado, building guitars full-time. .

    Baranik Retreux Parlour 'Bee's Knees' - Italian Spruce & Beeswing Figured Bubinga

    Out of stock
    Very lightly used with two small dings on the top, too light to photograph and some varnish wear.

    This really is the bee's knees. Its the fifth Parlour Retreaux I've had from Mike. The figured Bubinga is the most spectacular I've seen. The tone is very warm with fantastic depth.
