If you thought one guitar from Gerald Sheppard would blow you away, you might want to batten down the hatches before visiting the shop: we just got three brand new Ave Maria Sheppards from the man himself!

Of the three, this Ave Maria Grand Concert has sovereign sonority. Prepare to have an emotional response to playing this guitar: this kind of richness is usually reserved for a king's table. With the back and sides, Sheppard reminds us what Brazilian Rosewood is all about--that it is the pinnacle of majestic, sweeping tonality. With a Swiss Spruce top thrown into the mix, this GC can show off trebles with are well-defined and bass which is rolling and expressive. Sheppard's mastery of the craft is obvious in the perfect fit and finish, the lower bout soundport, and the arm, rib, and cutaway bevels, which are smooth, arcing, and supremely comfortable. Fingerstylists, this is the guitar you've been dreaming about ever since you first put fingertip to string--the articulation is profound, the string-to-string balance pianistic.

Do yourself a favor and visit the showroom to try these three sisters out--but be prepared for a stalemate, because they are equally magnificient!

New Sheppard Ave Maria Grand Concert -  Acoustic Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"Guitars that sound this good should be illegal, because they make everything else look so wan in comparison! Seriously though, this is one of the most resonant and responsive Sheppards I've ever played--and the sustain! The panoply of overtones hangs in the air for a great many long seconds." - Paul Heumiller

"Beautiful workmanship and stunning woods are what this guitar is all about. Fingerstyle players and strummers alike will enjoy this one." - Al Petteway
