Schneider, Richard

Rarely does an artist achieve such notoriety and respect among peers. Richard Schneider has become mentor to an entire generation of instrument makers. By pushing the envelope of design and innovation, his instruments have gained well deserved attention, once prompting Maestro Andrés Segovia to proclaim "To Richard Schneider, in whose hands is the future of the guitar."

Richard Schneider passed in 1997 but he left a long legacy of Luthiers that are better for having known him. His guitars are powerful and expressive. An innovator for sure, and most certainly a friend to the musician.

    Schneider, Richard Kasha Classical Guitar
    SOLD

    Out of stock

    This rare and boisterous Schneider boasts some of the most unique and innovative bracing ever seen in the guitar world: Kasha style bracing. Schneider's Kasha bracing takes a step from the traditional, but the flying buttresses, chaotic bracing pattern and a little black magic bring about astounding results in this guitar. The Premium Grade Redwood top and back pair with ultra rigid Brazilian Rosewood sides to give this instrument a powerful, sustaining sound that projects with gusto. In voice, it is inspiring - the bass rolls out with ease, followed by full, strong mids and great, punching and sustaining trebles. It is equal parts professional instrument and masterwork objet d'art. One you simply won't want to miss.

    An incredibly unique guitar from the late Richard Schneider.
