Description

And now for a special treat. We’re selling a fantastic Concert Classical from Douglas Ching which comes to us all the way from 1987 in Hawaii. Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, Spruce top, and a refinish and restoration from the venerable Thomas Baldwin make for an excpetionally resonant player. The voice is particularly well balanced from E to e, allowing for complex chords to ring out with even definition along the fretboard. The neck features a medium depth carve, and the whole operation weighs in at three and a half pounds! That lightness goes right into the Ching voice: clear and transparent with lots of headroom.

This guitar was brought to us by the professional player Yasmine Uybadin. She chose it for its ability to perform the classical repertoire in an honorable fashion. Even in response, wonderful intonation and playability, and most importantly inspiration and joy.
