Just Arrived: Beautiful Baranik Guitars...

Revered Californian luthier Mike Baranik is an individual whose work we have drooled over for quite some time, and having had a number of his remarkable builds land in our pre-owned section over the years we got well and truly hooked.

Earlier this year, we had the privilege of announcing that we would be representing Baranik Guitars and have since received some truly stunning instruments, with the latest pair both no exception to this and a true testament to why we are so deeply enamoured with the sensational guitars that emerge from Mike’s workshop.
