  • Weber Yellowstone A4 Mandocello: A style, oval hole.


    Awesome! This is one of finest mandocellos I have played. The late Stan Jay famously described the mandocello sound as being like a deep growl from the jungle. This one is coming from somewhere much deeper, the very bowels of the earth. But unlike some cellos it doesn’t lack clarity and definition, it has it all, and it looks incredible. A mandocello for the connoisseur.

    It features a hand graduated and tuned solid spruce top, flamed maple back and sides, ivoroid bound ebony with black/ivoroid side accent lines headstock veneer, ‘The Weber’ script and MoP white and gold headstock inlay, ebony fretboard and traditional Brekke bridge. It has a 24 3/4” scale length and 1 5/8”nut width, dual action adjustable truss rod, cast Weber tailpiece, Grover tuners and a deluxe hard case.

  • Martin D-28CW Clarence White 2005. £1750.

    2005 D-28CW Clarence White in very good condition with a few dings (too small to photograph) and an old and stable neck repair (see photo). It has all the power and depth of tone you would expect from a classic rosewood Martin dread and with an Adirondack top you have that extra power, definition and projection. And needless to say, endless headroom. With Martin hard case, a bit tatty with one broken catch but fully serviceable.

  • From Simon Fay.

    The finish process has begun. The guitar has been pore-filled and a sealer has been applied along with the first polyester coat. A second coat is applied and then the finish will be leveled and buffed to a high gloss. The resulting finish is around 0.002” on the soundboard. The benefits of polyester are that the finish does not continue to shrink over time — so no sinking around purfling, rosette, or glue lines. The polyester is also impervious to solvents, cold checking, and incredibly scratch resistant.
