This stunning CX from Mike Baranik features a wonderful set of Panama Rosewood for the back and sides with a super high grade Colorado Blue Spruce top.
Being a Concert Model build the guitar is exceptionally balanced, and when you factor in the superb playability, Body Wedge and other custom features you wind up with an instrument that is deeply versatile and intuitively musical to interact with.
The combination of Panama Rosewood and Colorado Blue Spruce yields a crisp and articulate range of tones that suit a wide range of tunings and playing styles, with wonderful clarity across each string and register. The lows are tight and controlled, the mids punchy and the highs laden with chime and character, with plenty of headroom should you take to the instrument with a flatpick!
The neck sports the comfortable, slim profile we've come to associate with Mike's fantastic builds, and all the way through to the dusty end of the board plays in a responsive and lively manner.
This sensational instrument suffered a very minor crack in the top which has since been immaculately repaired and refinished by one of London's finest luthiers, making this staggering concert model available at a once in a lifetime price point.
