CB #16: One of my earlier guitars when I was very much under the influence of Jacques Castelluccia’s guitars from the 50s and 60s.

Englemann spruce top, Claro walnut back and sides, butternut neck, Evo Gold frets on a rosewood fingerboard and a thin polished short oil varnish finish.  3.7 pounds.   The neck is a modern size, flatted D section, action is at 2.6mm/2.0mm at the 12th fret. These pictures are current. $2,800 w/ HSC. (Cash price, Maryland buyers pay 6% sales was)

    This is a beautiful instrument. It has a rich tone and seems to be very responsive in the videos with Michael playing some very nice passages to demonstrate the evenness and clear tonal qualities throughout the range of the instrument. The sound is very well balanced from rich, dry bass to clear bell like trebles. Sweet!
