Baranik Meridian Concert, African Blackwood & Colorado Blue Spruce - Pre-Owned


Sold Make an enquiry


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 a balanced low-end. 

Additionally, with Baranik’s meticulous appointments, this instrument's aesthetics are like no other. From the rosette to the peghead veneer to the custom purfling, this California-made Baranik Meridian Concert is one-of-a-kind, and it stands as a representation of Mike Baranik’s masterful work. We're not sure what year this one was made, but the condition is excellent.
