2017 Bashkin 00-12, Honduran Mahogany/Adirondack Spruce
SOLDAdd to Compare
At the perfect intersection between form and function, that’s where you’ll find Michael Bashkin’s work. We recently snagged a like-new 2017 00 that’s got us grinning from ear to ear! Somehow Michael seems to be able to coax a few more ounces of richness out of such a small guitar than you’d think possible. Here he manages to voice Honduran Mahogany and Adirondack Spruce for maximum resonance and clarity with a delicate spray of overtones in the trebles. The bass response is crisp and cuts easily through the mix without enveloping the entire voice. Drop this 00 down into DADGAD or lower, and a new kind of creature emerges: articulate, resounding, full-sized.
Michael is one of the few luthiers working today whose voicing chops match his aesthetic execution: Bashkins are beautiful guitars. The 12-fret neck features Amber fret markers on the bass side (serving double duty as side dots and board markers), and you’ll find Michael’s “Compass Point” rosette below that in burl, and his braided “Leaf Vein” headstock above. Gossamer-smooth finish catches the light like a jewel, and Michael’s neck carve could teach a feather a thing or two about softness.
Even our guy that doesn’t like 00s was blown away! An incredible guitar, in every possible sense of the word.
