This guitar is brand new, in perfect condition. It is handmade from the Katoh Milestones Luthier Center

Spruce top. Cypress back and sides. Two available.

Where to start with this guitar. By far and away the nicest flamenco I have ever played, but then I'm a classical player and have not delved into flamenco guitars a great deal. It has an absolutely beautiful sound, and it is so satisfying to play.

Comes in an hard shell lightweight case. At this stage there are 2 to choose from, so the first to have a look will get to choose. There is a small difference in the sound of these 2.

Katoh KSFEQ Flamenco Guitar

Katoh KSFEQ Flamenco Guitar Katoh KSFEQ Flamenco Guitar

This guitar is brand new, in perfect condition. It's an older model, as it does not have the tuner built into the preamp.

Solid select spruce top, Cypress Honduras mahogany back and sides, ebony fingerboard. Fishman prefix pro blend peamp system. Internal microphone and pizzo pickup system. 650mm string length.

The action is still about what you"d want for a classical guitar, and perhaps a little high for a flamenco, but I don't intend to change this unless requested by the purchaser. I'd suggest it to be taken to some who can set this up to ones exact requirements.

Comes in an original Katoh deluxe case.

Katoh Alex/CS Classical Guitar

Katoh Alex/CS Classical Guitar Katoh Alex/CS Classical Guitar

This guitar is brand new, but a second. It has a very small scratch on the back. I have been unable to photograph this. It is very small and only noticable if looking very carefully.

Custom 19th century style guitar, Solid Spruce top, Mahogany back and sides and neck, rosewood fingerboard, "moustache" bridge, wood rosette, flamed maple headstock veneer, deluxe gold plated machine heads, traditional gloss finish.

This guitar does not come in a case, and is still packed in it's original cardboard box.

Interesting instrument. It does not have the big sound, and especially the bottom end response of a modern size classical, but it has a subtle transparency that is very easy and pleasant to listen to. Could be a very good instrument for recording.

Normally retails for $995, this one $550.

Katoh MSCC14R Nylon string Guitar

Katoh MSCC14RS Classical Guitar Katoh MSCC14RS Classical Guitar

This guitar is brand new, and in perfect condition.

Spruce top, rosewood back and sides, Mahogany neck, Ebony fingerboard, bone nut and saddle, Gloss finish.

Interesting guitar, not really a classical guitar at all. It's a thin line nylon string, with great resistance to feedback that works pretty well acoustically. Sounds very nice amplified. Unlike the traditional classical neck, it has a radiused fingerboard. It certainly suits the Latin jazz player, or anyone looking to amplify a nylon string sound without the traditional wide and flat classical neck. It sits very comfortably, is nice and light and so easy to play if your doing jazz like arrangements etc.

This one has a B-Band pickup and electronics. The electronics on these guitars have varied over the past few years, and the later ones seem to have the B-Band instead of the Fishman setup seen on earlier ones.

Normally retails for $1895, this one $890.

Comes in it's original deluxe Katoh case.

Katoh MSCC14RS Classical Guitar Pickup

Katoh Alemagna 1AE Classical Guitar

Katoh Alemagna 1AE Classical Guitar Katoh Alemagna 1AE Classical Guitar

This guitar is brand new, but has a major issue. When tuned to pitch the top baloons up, causing the string action to increase. I have consulted a luthier (Sachar Amos) who confirms that the top is a bit thin, and does not have adequate bracing. The advice is that addition bracing be added. This requires removing the back of the guitar. It is a major job, for which Sachar has quoted $1500. This will result in a truly excelent guitar. An alternative repair is to replace the fingerboard to take up the increased actionn. This is a simpler job, much less expensive, but not what I would recommend as a good long term solution.

This is a double top guitar with the elevated fingerboard. Madagascar rosewood back and sides.

Comes in a hard case.

I'm offering this instrument for sale as is. For someone who wants a supurb guitar and is happy to proceed with the work, or for someone who is willing and able to undertake this work themselves.

Price; $500. I don't know the price of this instrument in Australia, because 1 may never have been sold here. The Milestones web site listst this for sale for 2750 Brittish Pounds.

Classical Guitar Rest, made by Wolf

Classical Guitar Rest

Having used one of these for a few years now I just had to add it to my web site. This rest is ideal for someone wanting an alternative to the footstool, when playing classical guitar. It allows both feet to be on the floor at the same level, so does not angle the lower back and potentially cause problems there. This rest is particularly useful for taller guitar players, as the guitar needs to be raised even more. I have always found the need to extend footstools to the maximum, and still tend to bend forward over the guitar.

Price: $30.
