Condition
Very Good. There is some finish checking but it is intended as Boaz uses a secret finish designed to check over time and release the soundboard. This is a technique used by the finest violin makers in history. There are some prior hairline crack repairs by Boaz.

Description

We are thrilled to have a new relationship with Elkayam Boaz of Israel. What a joy to present as his first guitar at Dream Guitars this stunning museum quality Baroque guitar. The amount of detailed workmanship in this instrument is mind-boggling, from the multi-piece back to the eleborate rosette, the soundboard inlays, wooden bridge extensions, friction pegs with Ivory seats, Ivory strings stops and back of neck inlays, this is a true work of art. This guitar was the subject of a wonderful article in Acoustic Guitar Magazine by luthier Rick Turner in November 1997. The voice is detailed and articulate, perfect for period music. It is intimate and very sweet, delicate but not weak. It's a joy to hold and behold this fine Boaz guitar.

This is the kind of guitar that makes your heart stop. It is so beautiful and so wonderfully crafted that it is mesmerizing. I simply cannot walk by it without holding it and playing it. Boaz spent countless hours tirelessly creating this museum quality piece, he even cut the Abaolone from the shells. The details are too many to mention so be sure to carefully study the photos. The tone is majestic and warm, delightful in every way. This will be a prize in any serious collection.
 
This is a great homage to the earliest Baroque parlor guitars. It's fun to play and would be a great addition to any serious collection.
