This guitar was built in honor of Richard Schneider, who along with Dr. Kasha worked to develop new bracing and voicing ideas for the modern guitar. What's very special about this instrument is that Elkayam Boaz partnered with George Majkowski, a long time student of Richard Schneider and they built it in Richard's shop using his tools. Then they took it to Dr. Kasha's lab and performed acoustic tests which showed it outperforms earlier instruments. The body is crafted with a Redwood top and back and Brazilian Rosewood sides. The tone is robust with powerful bass notes and a strong and warm midrange. The Berillium Copper Frets make for easy play. This is a very rare Commemorative Edition.

1998 Boaz/Majkowski Kasha-Schneider Concert Guitar - Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"For fans of the Schneider-Kasha designs this is a holy grail. It was crafted in Schneider's shop by Majkowski and Boaz and in cooperation with Dr. Kasha. The unique Redwood top and back design makes it extremely warm and rich with a fresh voice. The neck plays beautifully on every fret and you can reach up the high octave thanks to the extended fingerboard." - Paul Heumiller

"This is a very unique and exciting guitar. The voice is rich and charactered." - Al Petteway
