Hand crafted by Karl Eckert



This guitar was made for a customer who wanted an over-sized parlour guitar. I used some of my stock of Brazillian Rosewood as it has exceptional tone, and alpine spruce soundboard for its response. 


I am particularly proud of the resulting instrument that looks beautiful and sounds incredible - one of the best guitars I think I have ever heard. 



My customer wanted a classical guitar made from Indian Rosewood and Engleman Spruce. He wanted a flower inlaid in to the neck on the back, which made this a very personal commission. 


This guitar sounded lovely and warm, and was perfect for his classical style. 



Once we set out what the specific requirements of the instruments are, the build process starts. Customers are involved in selecting the cuts of wood that are to be used, and then I get to work using a series of processes and jigs that I have developed that enable me to get the perfect shape and thickness, and as a result, tone. 



I always have a good stock of flame sycamore, mahogany and other tone woods to make a range of electric guitars and bass guitars. 


This bass and the blue/green guitar below were commissions, and both had exceptional sustain.
