This is a brand new Robert Bouchet inspired guitar that I made in 2018-2019.  The back and sides (single sides) are Indian Rosewood, the top is Western Red Cedar, braced like Bouchet/Friederich does.  The neck is Spanish Cedar with an Ebony fingerboard.  Bridge is Indian Rosewood.  Rosette is Custom made design by me, with Torres inspirations.  Purflings are custom made Maple and light Green Anigre veneer.  Scale length is 650mm's plus compensation.  Finish is French Polish.  Tuning machines are Gotoh Professionals with Faux Ivory buttons.  This is a light weight classical guitar inspired by the work of Robert Bouchet and Daniel Friederich, two of my favorite guitar makers.  It's a lovely guitar to play and it's voice is loud, clear and warm.  It's cozy to hold due to its light weight.  It comes in a hard shell plush case.  Shipping costs have gone UP considerably, recently.  So, shipping Overnight is not inexpensive.  I am currently investigating less expensive shipping options, but plan on a minimum of $350.00 for Overnight shipping.  Or save on shipping and pick it up in Orlando, Florida, at my workshop.  I cannot ship this guitar out of the States due to Rosewood/Cities export restrictions.
