2005 Monrad Classical East Indian/European
SOLDAdd to Compare
Over the years, we’ve had a number of guitars pass from Eric Monrad’s shop and into ours, each with its own unique flavor. This 2005 Classical, dubbed “Si Puedo” on the label, might be the champion. Utilizing the classic combination of East Indian Rosewood for the back and sides and European Spruce (here with gorgeous bear claw figure) for the top, Monrad is able to offer a classical with excellent balance across all the registers and trebles that are clean and present.
Eric’s been building fulltime since 1992, with decades of repair experience before that, so it comes as no surprise that his instruments are all superbly constructed, and have a proclivity towards lasting sustain–this 2005 is resonant enough to start singing as soon as you open its TKL hardshell case. Featuring Monrad’s trademark attention to detail, the inlaid binding on the heel and the marquetry along the headstock and around the soundhole are gorgeous, subtle, and tastefully original. Finally, Eric finished this Classical, as he does with all his instruments, with French Polish to ensure the plates are as uninhibited and responsive as possible, and Rodgers tuners custom made to Eric’s design.
