Default Two Don Sharp Guitars for Sale

UPDATE: reposting just the TTS

Sharp TTS - $8,000 OBO

Port Orford Cedar Top

Cuban Mahogany Back with Spalted Maple Centerstrip

Laminated Sides with Cuban Mahogany and Brazilian Rosewood

Brazilian Rosewood Binding (which, because of the intricacies of the binding, required a full BRW set)

Sectioned Rosette with Spalted Maple and Ebony Fleur de Lyses

Five Piece Laminated Neck

Gotoh 510 Tuners

Wedge Body Shape

Glow in the dark fret markers

Build Thread

Sound Sample

The TTS uses a bracing and voicing that Don came up with after the Somogyi voicing class. The highs are fat and rich ... The lows are resonant and don’t get in the way of the highs. The sound is evenly balanced all the up the neck. Playing this guitar is an absolute dream! I am really selective on who I let play this guitar and a while back I had a jazz guitarist and friend play it (who also does work on a lot of high end custom guitars). He was impressed by the rich sound, sustain and the meticulous attention to detail, which he says is rare.



The TTS in in immaculate condition. It comes with a Hoffee case which is also in great condition, although it has a gash in the finish.



Here are the pictures.























Thank you so much for looking!

Default Very Nice

2 very beautiful guitars. I have taken a liking to Don Sharp guitars since first seeing Doug Young play his version of Wildwood Flower on a Sharp SJ on Youtube years ago. I have also seen your videos in my searches about his guitars. Great job on your music. Good luck with the sale, and congratulations on the upcoming addition! My own 3 children, (and having braces put on the oldest in 2 weeks!) have a lot to do with why I am unable to buy one of these magnificent guitars.
Once again, good luck. Those are very nice guitars.
Shane

Don builds great guitars, I think I may have him talked into building me one. If that falls through I give you a shout.

Both of these Sharp guitars sound great but the tone of the TTS is, "to die for". In a word,
"stunning"! I've never heard better.

Thanks! Don makes some fabulous guitars

One week till due date BUMP! Speaking of bump, we got our maternity pictures back from a great friend of ours, Fr. Steve! We couldn't resist this photo (featuring both guitars and the uke we bought on our first trip back to Hawaii after we got married) ...

That's a great pic. Good luck in the next week or two. That will be one blessed event. Hope you get a guitar sold soon.
