Baruke Guitars MINSTREL Small Body 14-Fret with Torrefied Sitka Spruce and Honduran Rosewood

We are frequently approached by local guitar builders to consider their guitars for our store. It is rare that we encounter individuals like Allen Williams who not only have the skill to build a beautiful guitar, but who also have found and developed their own unique voice. There is a liveliness, depth and woody response to these guitars that is reminiscent of the tonal character of the best Gibsons. However, the Barukes have a longer sustain with a more lyrical finish.

Upon a recent visit to Alan's shop, I sampled three guitars that he had in his office, and after sampling each, I was especially drawn to this Minstral model guitar. Though simple in appearance, and of a size slightly smaller than a OOO but with a deeper body, I was immediately struck by the excellent balance of all aspects of this guitar's sound. Solid in each register, lively and responsive to any mode of playing, this guitar is simply fun to play, and it will surprise you for its dynamic range.

This guitar includes a deluxe Cedar Creek archtop hardshell case.

Our Price: $3895.00
