It was my extreme pleasure to build this Concert Guitar for fingerstyle guitarist and composer, Karlijn Langendijk. Urlacher guitars, built for fingerstyle, seemed like a good fit for Karlijn's sweet melodies and unique playing style.
Though rare and expensive, especially in fine quality, Brazilian Rosewood is traditionally regarded as the finest of tonewoods. It offers clarity, a warm rich tone with full bases and sparkling trebles. This wood is a pleasure to work with; it rings out like a bell when tapped, and dust particles fill the shop with a sweet intoxicating scent. This Concert Style guitar back boasts a striking sapwood center with contrasting dark-brown marbled figure. I will be building a few more instruments with this premier tonewood.
