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.
Comments: John Gilbert's classical guitars are a favorite among the concert and recording artists because of their volume and wide tonal palette. This guitar is very powerful, focused and lively. The waiting list for one of these babies is very long.

Cost: $8,500


This I just got. A Manuel Velazquez 1957. This is one is for show more than for playing.

Specifications: Spruce top, Brazilian rosewood back and sides, 650 mm scale length.
Comments: Manuel Velazquez has rightfully earned the reputation as one of this countries mosty highly regarded builders. His instruments are Hauser 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.

Cost: $9,500
