About This Listing

Offered for sale is a fine example of a boutique guitar craftsmanship by the legendary Harvey Leach. This is model/serial number is the CM248. This is my personal favorite of all the Harvey Leach Guitars listed. It plays immaculately, looks incredible and has a luscious tone.

This CM248 is an example of the amazing luthier work of Harvey Leach. Harvey is a world-renowned luthier and inlay artist. His work has been featured on many fine manufacturers; including, PRS, Gibson, Olson Guitars, Kevin Ryan Guitars, Collings Guitar, and most notably C.F. Martin Guitars. Some of the most collectible and desired Martin guitars ever built are adorned with Harvey Leach artwork.  For example, the 1.5 millionth Martin ever made, the Leonardo Da Vinci Guitar, is insured for over a million dollars and kept in Martin's personal museum.

One of the most striking features of this guitar are the back and sides. Made from Brazilian Rosewood Sapwood (Whitewood), the back and sides are GORGEOUS to look at. Sapwood (Whitewood) occurs on all trees. Sapwood on a guitar adds a dramatic contrast and there have been and still are top quality instruments being made that feature portions of sapwood. The beauty of the guitar and its wood is enhanced by Paua shell inlays (similar to abalone but with a deep blue tint).
