Description

This guitar needs no introduction. You’re looking at a 1996 Lattice Classical from Greg Smallman. Brazilian Rosewood back and sides paired with Cedar on top, XXXXX tuners, and the original Tiger Eye wooden case. Touched by a master, this Smallman was originally owned by none other than virtuoso David Tenanbaum. You can find recordings of David with this guitar on his self-titled 1997 record (https://www.discogs.com/David-Tanenbaum-David-Tanenbaum/release/5755209). In true Smallman fashion, this guitar has a signature heft to it, and the fearsome projection and sustain that characterize Greg’s finest work. What more is there to say? A Smallman is completely in its own category, a legacy instrument.

Smallman is perhaps one of the most important innovators in modern classical guitar. His discoveries have led to some of the most powerful instruments you’ll ever play. This guitar is louder than some of our biggest steel string instruments. And volume is not all you get, the tone is clear, the bass full and warm, and it’s just pure fun to play an instrument with so much energy and aliveness. Pure joy.
