Details

Mike Baranik’s elegant eye for beautiful design, and his instinctive ear for acoustic guitar tone shine through in this example of his Meridian Concert model.  The stark contrast between its Colorado Blue Spruce top, and its beautifully grained African Blackwood back and sides, give this guitar both an incredible visual and tonal appeal. Its sound is filled with overtone resonance, crisp highs, and balance low-end. 

Additionally, this instrument's aesthetics are like no other with Baranik’s meticulous appointments; from the rosette, to the peghead veneer, to the custom purfling, and everything in between.  This California-made Baranik Meridian Concert is one of a kind, and it stands as a representation of Mike Baranik’s masterful work.
