"We began building guitars in 1989 simply as an interesting and challenging father-and-son project. Bob was a pharmacist by profession and Orville a retired building inspector. Orville brought years of woodworking experience as well as his years spent as a piano technician during the 1970s to our luthiery work. Orville had played classical guitar for most of his life and passed on the love of the instrument to Bob."

The father-son team of Orville and Robert Milburn specialize in handcrafting classical guitars over in Oregon. The combination of cedar and Brazilian rosewood on this nylon-string is as rich, deep and warm as could be, with incredible sustain. A unique rosette of what we suspect may be Oregon myrtlewood adds a local flair to this beautiful nylon-string. This pre-owned model does show some signs of honest play wear (visible in the photos, primarily below the strings near the bridge and above from the right thumb). But for a serious classical player who wants excellent tone and doesn't mind player's grade status, this Milburn is a great option.
