Lakestone / SL / 2019 / Natural / Guitar For Sale
Although luthier Tony Wright has been building guitars for over 30 years, he only founded Lakestone Guitars seven years ago, and are already receiving great plaudits. Having worked with George Lowden on several projects, his guitars have a similarity to classic Lowden guitars, but with a very modern twist. Also his choice of tone woods is very impressive. The SL (Small Lakestone) is essentially a mini jumbo, but with a deeper body to allow the bass notes to ring out - hence the Mahogany bevel, to make the guitar feel very comfortable to play. This example has a Western Red Cedar top with stunning Ziricote back and sides, an Ebony fingerboard and bridge, with Ziricote and Abalone rosette. The sound is full with clear lows, even mids and a beautiful high end with lots of string-to-string definition and complex overtones. The top is voiced by hand to provide a beautiful deep cutting through rounded bass, which is never overpowering.The guitar’s in excellent condition and is fitted with a JJB surface mount pickup which works very well, and comes in it’s original Hiscox flight case.
Glenns Guitars, UK
Welcome to Glenn's Guitars here on Vintage & Rare. After many years in the industry, and having been fortunate enough to have worked in Hanks and The Acoustic Centre - probably London's two foremost acoustic guitar shops - I decided to do my own thing.
I have a passion for used and vintage acoustic guitars; nearly new second hand guitars because they can represent a bargain compared to the price of a new guitar, older and vintage guitars because they tend to have more character and can often become an investment.
You will notice when viewing my stock list my taste in guitars, as I only sell guitars that I genuinely like - and there are certain brands noticeable by their absence. I am a huge fan of older Gibson, Martin and Guild acoustics, but also more boutique brands such as Lowden and Collings.
I will consider part exchange if it makes your desired guitar a little easier to afford. I also offer a guitar finding service, if there's something specific you're looking for.
If you are happy to buy over the internet, I will send you as many high resolution photos and as much information about the guitar you're interested in as I can. If you can get to me - I'm based in Enfield, only 30 minutes from London Liverpool Street Station - you can always make an appointment with me and come and try some of the guitars out first.
I accept payment by Paypal, bank transfer, cheque and of course cash.
