NEW Custom Gabon Ebony Guitar
Amazing Gabon Ebony Back and Sides, Italian Spruce Top, Florentine Cutaway, Built for Swiss Guitarist Stéphane Nicolas Werder: The Cat Guitar was inspired and commissioned by Swiss/French Guitarist Stéphane Werder. Steph is a great animal lover and Cats top his list of all time favorite pets. Gabon Ebony was a great choice for the Back and Sides and mixing it with a splendid Spruce top was the perfect combination to deliver the deep, warm sound so typical of the classical guitar plus the tremendous clarity of the Italian Alpine species. Stéph wanted custom measures for the nut which was made at 48mm and a flying fingerboard to allow for a more generous vibration of the top. The Florentine cutaway not only makes access to the higher position a lot easier but it also adds elegance and an air of royalty to the instrument. The inlay cat was handmade on a Blackwood fingerboard and 640mm was the chosen scale. Stéph plays all types of guitars and he insisted that the transition from the acoustic and electric action to the classical not be as drastic. Linear Marquetry an optional onboard EQ/Digital Tuner and a Carbon fiber truss rod completed the list of custom specs. The all-wood style doubletop was his choice of bracing and Stéph knows that I am also a big fan of the doubletop. It allows the guitar to sound fuller and takes care of all the unwanted wolf notes and harmonic conflicts that stringed instruments so often present. In the video I play Romance and Bach Air on the G String. The sound is full and vibrant. She's very easy to play thanks to Stéph custom action measures. The separation of voices is simply put perfect. Steph has the guitar for display in Basel, Switzerland and he is the official representative of Bellucci Guitars for Switzerland and Europe. S.D.G.
