Description

This multiscale Placencia from Michael Bashkin is to a fingerstylist what a dog is to a regular person: their best friend. Not only is Michael’s fit and finish flawless and his aesthetic elegant and contemporary, but his voicing techniques here yield an incredibly precise and responsive OM that can handle just about anything. 26 inches at the low E down to a standard 25.4 at the trebles gives the player the opportunity to dip down into C territory without swapping for heavier strings, and when you pair that with a slim neck profile and overall slinky setup you’re looking at an exquisitely easy player that offers up heaps of tone with even a delicate attack.
Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, German Spruce top, Florentine Cutaway, arm bevel, soundport—what more could you ask for? It’s guitars like this Bashkin  Placencia that humble us, and push us as musicians to keep exploring the sonic possibilities of our field. And that’s about the highest praise we can offer for any guitar.

Michael Baskin does it again. This one has a deep, round sound, very full bodied and satisfying. A gentle multiscale fingerboard gives this one added versatility. The 26 inch bass scale is perfect for DADGAD and C tunings, and of course standard. You get beauty and the beast in this guitar.
 
This guitar has beautiful woods and the design is exquisite. The tone is dark and rich in the low mids giving it a unique voice.
