  • 2002 John Price Spruce Guitar

    John Price is an Australian luthier and he specializes in the lattice/carbon graphite construction which was pioneered, as you probably know, by Greg Smallman. It has Brazilian rosewood back and sides, and has been very well looked after with virtually no marks or scratches. It has a beautiful ringing tone, and like all lattice guitars it has amazing sustain and projection.

    It was bought for £5250, but as John Price only produces a small amount of guitars every year I have not found a 2002 model for sale to estimate its resell value, hence its value is negotiable.

  • A copy of Antonio de Torres FE18 guitar by James Westbrook. The scale length is 640mm. The original guitar was built by Torres in 1864 and now resides in the The Guitar Museum in Brighton, of which James is the founder and curator.  Its 'sister' guitar, made from the same tree, was owned by Francisco Tarrega.

This guitar is one of the most preserved examples of Torres’ work and has never been opened for repair and thus it still retains the sound, for which the likes of Julián Arcas, Francisco Tárrega and Miguel Llobet all chose him as their guitar-maker. 

Under one-hundred of Torres'guitars are known to survive and every so often, James slowly makes a faithful copy of this incredible instrument, taking him one year to complete.  In the photographs below, the original Torres is on the left and James' copy on the right.
