As life will have it, I unfortunately have to part with my gorgeous 2010 Kolya Panhuyzen guitar due to financial reasons- only. I am the first owner and have been the only one since the guitar was built for me in the Summer of 2010. It is an absolutely beautiful guitar: cedar top with Brazilian back and sides (see photos), elevated fingerboard, 20th fret, etc. This guitar comes with Alessi tuning machines, and Hiscox case (brand new 2013).
Guitar only shows minimal signs of wear from professional use, and has absolutely no cracks. Just a few tiny nail dings and scratches around the sound-hole, but not visible until very close inspection. The guitar has been played-in well, and has opened up beautifully in three years.
The tone is rather warm and deep, with rich bass and exceptionally even, and well-sustaining trebles. The neck is shaped for comfort, and it feels great to touch. Te elevated fingerboard enhancement is twofold: while it's providing the easy access to the higher positions, it's also creating a string angle for better action and quicker tone response, as well as the longer sustain. Kolya Panhuyzen is one of the very few top luthiers building traditional fan-braced constructed guitars for several decades.
An absolute marvelous guitar, a one that would inspire a poet in you!
