Concert Classical Guitars

The Whittemore Concert Classical guitars are built primarily from well aged woods obtained in the mid to late 80s from the Spanish supplier Maderas, including some fantastic Brazilian rosewood.  I thank the kind people at Guitar Salon International in LA for allowing me to investigate their amazing collection of vintage instruments, and for their feedback on my prototypes, and also thanks to one of my electric customers for getting me on this path.  These guitars have a great range of both tonal color and volume.
