Description

An incredibly unique guitar from the late Richard Schneider. This is a Kasha Braced Nylon string acoustic/electric with incredible tones thanks to the Brazilian Rosewood sides, Redwood back, and Spruce top. It is constructed using the Kasha bracing method and incorporating a Redwood back, offset soundhole, jumbo round frets for mass and an impedance matched bridge design. All of this adds up to the unique Schneider voice that is powerful and compelling. The bass is huge and round and the trebles are articulate with great projection. This is a contemporary instrument capable of both modern and classic tones. Included is rare video footage of Richard Schneider himself explaining the workings of this wonderful instrument and it's custom designed microphone. This is a wonderfully collectible and eminently playable guitar. http://www.jthbass.com/kasha.html Click here for a great article about Schneider and Kash by Vince Meyer.

This is one of those rare treasures we occassionally get to offer. The late Richard Schneider was a visionary builder who worked closely with Dr. Kasha for over 30 years trying to improve the sound of the nylon string guitar. This wonderfully preserved Schneider guitar shows the culmination of their collaboration and it sounds amazing. Kept in collector condition, this is a rare find and a truly inspiring guitar.
