Music is a very big
part of my life. I play classical guitar and have been doing so since I
was five. Never touched that rock and roll stuff. Don't plan on doing so
either. I am also into collecting guitars. I've posted pictures of a few
guitars that I've recenly aquired. If you're interested in learning how
to play classical music, I've listed some links that you might be interested
in. Have fun with them.
This was my first guitar. I used for about 10 years when I decided to get
my first high quality classical guitar.
This is my first high quality limited classical guitar. It's a John Gilbert
1980. One of my favorite guitars to play.
Specifications: Spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, 650 mm scale
length, Gilbert tuners with ebony buttons.

influenced, but are regarded by many as being superior even to Hauser in balance
and focus. This instrument has some repaired cracks and has been refinished
in lacquer. The sound is vintage Velazquez.
