We are delighted to be able to offer this rare Thomas Humphrey Millenium guitar. It starts with a tremendous set of straight-grained Brazilian Rosewood and is topped with well-matured Spruce. This is a rare one where Tom used his curved 'smiley-face' bridge design and is a 660 scale.

Luthier, and head of Guitar at Furman University, Steven Walter went over this instrument for us and made a new bridge, refretted it and touched up the French Polish breathing wonderful new life into this wonderful guitar. This guitar is suitable for the highest level of player and has a very clear and articulate voice that is at once powerful and lyrical. This is a tremendous example of Humphrey's great work.

1987 Humphrey, Thomas Millennium - Classical Guitar Player Reviews

Player Reviews:

"We are delighted to have found this wonderful Humphrey Millenium guitar. It has some of the finest Brazilian you'll find. It arrived in need of a new bridge and setup and it was a joy to work with luthier Steven Walter to bring this guitar back to it's glory. He actually improved the tone by making a very lightweight Brazilian Rosewood Bridge that increased the power and quickness of the guitar. He also refretted it and touched up the French Polish so it's playing like a new guitar and is ready for years on the stage. We've seen a number of Humphrey and this is a great one that we can highly recommend. The voice is extraordinary. " - Paul Heumiller

"The only guitars that I've played that sounded this great were another Humphrey and a Hauser. The sound is absolutely perfect in all registers and the woods are amazing." - Al Petteway
