2008 Gregory Byers lattice

Woods: top is alpine spruce with lattice bracing and back and sides appear to be a very straight grained Brazilian rosewood or Cocobolo. Mahogany neck. French polish shellac throughout.

Specs: 650mm scale, 53mm nut, 43mm string spacing at nut, 57mm at saddle.  Raised fingerboard, slightly radiused.  Road Runner hard case. Finely detailed wheat motif rosette and matching purfling strip on head stock and up back center seam.  12 hole tie block.

Condition: excellent, with the exception of a minor stray scratch on the back, mint. The shellac appears as new. Case is in good condition.

Comment: the energy under these hard tension strings is immense, and the guitar invites energetic playing.  Like a sports car with a big engine, this guitar “takes off” when pushed.  The trebles are its distinctive aspect, with a  particularly fine high e string. Byers guitars have been sought after by advanced players for a very long time, and this one is as good as any new instrument by the master, and hard to find. Best of all, it is available now.
