We've currently got two guitars on the bench at Bashkin HQ, and we're excited to give you an insight into the build process.
Michael is currently building two JM models for us, one in Brazilian Rosewood and Swiss Spruce and the other in Maple and Swiss Spruce. The JM Model is a mid-sized, dynamic and contemporary guitar with a 9.6" waist and measuring 15.65" across the lower bout.
You can always expect a Bashkin guitar to be as beautifully aesthetic as it is functional, and with the choice of tone woods and appointments (shown below) beauty is certainly not lacking.
With crisp, elegant designs and extraordinary craftsmanship and the tonal response, a Bashkin guitar is extremely inspirational. Immediate, rich and sophisticated they are superb instruments for the discerning contemporary player. Michael is also a scientist whose graduate studies at Colorado State University and post-graduate research at Duke University taught him about the mechanics of wood. He understands wood to the nth degree, and knows his it's evolving.
