Default 2019 Michael Thames DT, Indian Rosewood/Cedar Double Top

This guitar feels like royalty, the perfect blend of power and elegance. Michael Thames is one of our favorite nylon string builders, and we especially love his Double Top models like #979 from 2019. Indian Rosewood body with a Cedar/Balsa double top makes for a voice that pairs a smooth, enveloping bass register with cool and precise trebles. We love the note definition, and separation between the registers. This Thames DT has a very vocal quality that imparts a lot of body and color, which we continually found ourselves losing track of time with. Thamesí fit and finish is flawless here, especially with a translucent French Polish finish that lets the Rosewood and Cedar shine. The headstock is carved with an Ebony veneer and Rosewood underneath which sets off the Gotoh tuners handsomely. The build weight comes in at an incredibly light 3lbs 7oz; this Thames DT is a featherweight in hand, but with a vigorous and expressive voice under the strings.

"Iíve long been a fan of Michael Thames' guitars. One of his was the very first good classical I ever purchased back in the 1990s. His voice is clear and present, articulate and full. Simply one of the best American makers." - Paul Heumiller

Price: $6,695
