Custom Gibson J200-Wildwood,  EngelmannSpruce/Flamed Maple!

Custom Gibson J200-Wildwood, SN #90896027, Engelmann Spruce/Flamed Maple!

This Custom Gibson was hand made by World-Renowned,  Master Luthier Ren Ferguson! Ren called us in 1994, during Gibson's Centennial Celebration, and invited us to have him make us some special Gibson acoustic instruments. We asked for two J200 Custom-built guitars, and this J200 Wildwood is one of them. Gorgeous Flamed Maple is not only used for the back and sides; but please take a look at that "tiger-striped" Maple neck!!! The top is tight-grained Engelmann Alpine Spruce, and what an incredible bass comes through its sinewy, flexible wood! We wanted black Ebony for the Gibson Super Jumbo bridge and fingerboard, and the more colorful Abalone pearl for the bridge, pick guard, and fingerboard inlays. And isn't it such a charming, vintage pean to use those gold Grover box tuners with the Ivoroid buttons! The arched case has "Gibson" emblazoned in gold lettering; and the elegant, regal, plush purple lining--together with the rich satin coffin cover--also purple--serve to denote this as a regal instrument, worthy of your love and adoration! Thanks to Ren Ferguson, who generously and personally shared with us his highly-regarded luthier gifts, in specially-crafting this instrument for Wildwood Music!!

Avalon Master Series, Custom Bevel, Fine Brazilian Rosewood/Alpine Spruce!

Avalon Master Series, Custom Bevel, Fine Brazilian Rosewood/Alpine Spruce!

When you first see this spectacular result of supremely-skilled luthery, you are engulfed within a vision of superlative beauty! Where to start describing our astonished first-hand encounter with this unbelieveable guitar is a most jubilant task to undertake! The venerable tone timber--CITIES-certified, old-growth Brazilian Rosewood brilliantly suits the excellent Alpine Spruce top, and one stroke of the strings will literally "part the waves" of any afficiando of fine instruments! So many reasons for this, but here are a few: the deftly-crafted Ebony bevel which gives much comfort on this mid-size Auditorium body; the special bracing of the top; the dove tail join of the slimly-carved neck to the body (Measure 1 3/4" at the bone nut). This would be enough for most acoustic guitar lovers. But we asked the adroit Master luthiers at Avalon to create an over-the-top work of art to enchant player and audience alike with visual--as well as auditory--allure! Would you believe it took eight hours to inlay this instrument's top, and specially craft the Celtic Abalone rosette? Draw your eyes to the third fret in the fingerboard. This inlay is called "Triquetra", and is an ancient Celtic symbol that today represents the Blessed Trinity, the Three-in-One; and can be found in the Book of Kells on exhibit at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. This splendid Avalon Custom guitar truly stands alone; it is the very top of Irish Luthery! A guitar of this magnitude should be--and is--lovingly secured in Hiscox's excellent Artist case! You will not find another Avalon guitar like this, anywhere else in the world! (Highest Quality Hiscox "Artist" Case included!)

Avalon Master Series, Custom Bevel, Rare Ziricote, Premium Redwood

Avalon Master Series, Custom Bevel, Rare Ziricote, Premium Redwood

This Auditorium-sized Avalon, with the Ebony bevel/armrest, is the quintessential instrument for providing playing comfort and a dominant tonal voice! The very rare tonewood is found in a small area in Central America, Belize, and Mexico, all on the Caribbean coast. This Master Grade Ziricote has frequently been compared to rich and complex tones, as found with Brazilian Rosewood and East Indian Rosewood. Others have likened sounds produced similar to Macassar Ebony, which seems to be generally crisp and clear. The Master Grade Redwood powerfully supports the Ziricote, and pleasingly presents the clarity and resonance of an Alpine top, along with masterfully merging strings of notes which one encounters in a Cedar-topped, steel string instrument! What is readily apparent is the breathtaking beauty of this visually stunning "spider web" grain, which immediately captures your aesthetic heart! But true discovery of this perfect blending of nature and art is yet to come; and you grasp the neck and gently hold the guitar in your lap. Newly-built guitars have distinctive olfactory treasures, and you draw in the precious air, perfumed by this acoustic treasure.

McIlroy Guitars

Dermot McIlroy, of Antrim, Northern Ireland, began building guitars in 1990, after several years plying the Carpentry trade. He worked for the then recently purchased and re-formed Lowden Guitar Company,(now known as Avalon Custom Luthiers), and his mentor was the great Japenese luthier, Micky Uchida, who was heading up the Lowden shop--he had previously been hired by George Lowden, in 1986 and stayed until the end of 1990, with the Avalon folks. (Link to a brief Uchida profile). Micky inspired his apprentice to infuse guitar building with "feeling" for the wood and the music.

Dermot, now in his own shop in Antrim, has earned worldwide respect for his craft, and his guitars are loved by many guitar players fortunate enough to own his creations! We are blessed to have several of Dermot's original guitar models in stock, here at Wildwood. Dermot is also accepting orders for Custom builds, as well! Be sure to view this lovely interview with Dermot, on You Tube! Access the McIlroy Web Page here, and "LIKE" his Facebook page, too!

george_lowden.jpg

Lowden Guitars

George Lowden designed the original, or "O" body size to feature a large sound box with a very distinctive outline. The lightness of weight is achieved by using split, rather than sawn, woods. Combined with the unique Lowden construction methods, this results in a guitar with immense power—yet surprising sensitivity. A precisely-balanced sound is achieved by voicing the bracing pattern to discipline the naturally deep basses to blend with the clear and precise trebles. The Lowden "F" body size was designed by George to produce a more complex, focused sound while retaining the characteristic power and brilliance of the "O" series. This is achieved by individually hand-tuning the top bracing pattern to emphasize the lower frequencies, which compliment the natural vibrancies of the upper and mid ranges. This creates, in the "F" series, a guitar of unequaled versatility for both fingerpicking and flatpicking styles.
