Sponsors (luthiers/builders/manufacturers), what guitars do you currently have in stock for sale or available from a dealer?

(Note: Sponsors only, please. I'll unstick this thread every month and start a new one to keep things fresh.)

Brian Itzkin concert classical in Madagascar rosewood and Swiss spruce (purchased from Stephen Hill who purchased it in the late 1990’s). Perona Tuners, Spanish cedar neck, madagascar rosewood binding, bridge, and headplate. Finished in hand rubbed french polish (shellac) and strung with Carbon strings.

I built this instrument in my former teacher’s workshop (Stephen Hill) in La Herradura, Granada Spain. It was built mostly during the 48 days of lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The bracing is a 5 fan system with large bridge bar inspired by the work of Robert Bouchet.

Price: $2,500 USD

14" parlor sized Brazilian rosewood with Adirondack spruce top. The rosewood was purchased 15 years ago from someone who brought it across earlier than that. To the best of everyone's knowledge the rosewood entered the states before 1993. I've reviewed cites, appendices and amendments. As far as I can tell this is legal to sell.

The guitar was finished at the end of July, It has a lacquer finish. Khaya mahogany neck and ebony bridge, fretboard and head stock. There is snakewood binding with herring bone pufling. Emerald resin inlay on the fretboard distinguishes the markers.

The guitar features our standard technology. An easily adjustable cantilever neck, split saddle intonation bridge, and falcate bracing system. These provide extra layers to a playable guitar with a modern voice.

I made this video for reverb so the first 1.5 minutes are chords and a little song and then rest is every note played.
