Description

Here is an amazing Bashkin with many upgrades and unusual figured Nara wood. Nara is Filipino Mahogany and it sounds as good as it looks. The list of options here is a long one, multiscale, cutaway, bound soundport, Nara, Amber markers, Amber pins, Koa buttoned Waverlys, Calton case and a K&K pickup. The really cool thing is that together these specs create a very subtle, practical guitar that really works. We love multiscale guitars, you won't even feel the fan but the tension is so much more balanced across the strings. The Sitka top here is also very special and full of silky medullary rays and French Polished for ultimate tone.

This beautiful Bashkin guitar has many beautiful options that add up to a completely stunning guitar. What's nice is that these upgrades are practical as well as beautiful. For starters the Nara wood, this figured mahogany is striking and gives a full, rich tone that is also quick in response. The multiscale fingerboard makes for glorious tension and improved intonation and with the subtle fanning you won't hardly notice it, but you'll be convinced by it's comfort in just minutes. The bound F hole soundport and Amber fret markers that also act as sidemarkers are a lot of work to implement but they add real style. The guitar is also outfitted with a K&K pickup and a Calton case, so there is no limit to what you can do with it.
 
Bashkin guitars are elegant and very responsive. I would recommend them to any discriminating fingerstyle player. The multiscale frets here makes for wonderful even tension.
