Description

It’s easy to get lost in this one. Gerald Sheppard upgraded this Grand Concert with his cream-of-the-crop Ave Maria package in Snakewood appointments, arm (and rib, and cutaway) bevels, Select Blue Paua inlays. Higuerilla back and sides is here paired with a gorgeous Sinker Redwood top for a comprehensively chocolate appearance that sets this Sheppard apart from the crowd. Tonally, this GC is a smooth talker. Excellent note separation, glassy and balanced trebles, an extra helping of sustain. Like we said, it’s easy to lose track of time with this Sheppard, it’s such a breeze to play and responds exactly how we need it to, regardless if we’re playing softly or with grit.


Here's an additional demo with our own Al Petteway: https://youtu.be/KMouzCt01To

Wow! Sinker Redwood on top of Higuerilla would give this one a stunning look with golden brown hues mixed with grays and blacks. Sinker redwood some of the best sounding of that variety in my opinion. This one is warm and juicy with a soft, round attack that is sublime.
 
Such a beautiful guitar. The sinker redwood top is a perfect match with the exotic wood used on the sides and back. Snakewood binding sets it off and creates a palette that is just gorgeous.
