Wickedly opened up and responsive as a firecracker, this 2000 GC Deluxe from Gerald Sheppard is a hot player at a competitive price. We haven't heard a Cedar-topped guitar this loud in some time, and the voice still retains the warmth and dynamism typical for Cedar, making this a deadly combination of projection and richness.
Featuring Indian Rosewood for the back and sides and bound with Curly Maple, this Sheppard is easy on the eyes and a blessing to your touch--the play feel is decidedly intimate and comfortable, and the GC responds well to even a delicate attack. The trebles in particular are chock full of sweet overtones, especially around the fifth and seventh frets, that help fill out the voice. Gone over by our repair staff, this Sheppard is in tip-top playing shape!

"The great string-to-string balance makes this a great choice for fingerstyle, and the extra warmth of the Cedar really brings out the color of the middle registers." - Paul Heumiller
"This is a classic guitar from Gerald Sheppard. It's features more traditional styling than his current models and sounds really good too. I think it's had enough time to open up over the years and blossom.
