With the same professionalism and high quality service, Guitar Square will bring you different surprises. The article will give you a hint of what to expect this year.
Highlights you cannot miss at Guitar Square booth
I. Guitars of Indie Luthiers：
For this year’s trade show, a new guitar made by the world-renowned luthier Ervin Somogyi will make its debut. This marvellous OMC is made of Sitka Spruce and African Blackwood, which won Kane’s favor when he visited Mr. Somogyi’s workshop this year. One should know, it’s quite rare for Mr. Somogyi to take a new order, as the base price can be as high as $40,000.
Besides, we do take preorders for acoustic guitars made by Leonardo Buendia ( Mr. Somogyi’s apprentice), Isaac Jang, Michihiro Matsuda, Ryan Gerber and Casimi.
Good news is that we will also display two newly completed Kevin Ryan acoustic guitars.
It is absolutely true that ready guitars made by Kevin Ryan are hard to get on the market nowadays. These two guitars are specially reserved for the Chinese market. With the widely-recognized German Spruce top, Ziricote and Macassar Ebony back and sides respectively selected by Kane from a dozen sets of wood, the sound of them are bright and breathtaking. As you can see, the patterns of these two guitars are extraordinarily stunning.
The fingerboards are featured with exclusive Dragonfly inlays. The whole design is elegant and unconventional.
Also on display are 3 guitars made by the master luthier Jeffrey Yong.
This JJ Limited model with Tiger Inlay is made of Master Redwood and Macassar Ebony, and is one of Yong’s masterpieces.
The JJ Signature model is one of Jeffrey Yong’s classicals and is available in a limited number.
The 007 is a revolutionary series, the tops were handvoiced by Jeffrey Yong and factory did the assembling work. It is quite popular with great sound and reasonable price.
II. Handcrafted Guitars:
For this year, we will bring classical models like M32CP, M45CP, M48CP, M53Cp and M54CP for display. You can check the full line of Lakewood guitars at one go.
As for Lowden Guitars from Northern Ireland, we have models like O22, O32, O35, F50 and a rare PB Signature model.
What’s more, there will be a limited run of 7 Alpine Spruce + Madagascar Rosewood F50s on display with bracings voiced by George Lowden’s son Aaron Lowden. The sound quality of these guitars is superior to that of common models.
This F50 model is made of Lowden’s best wood, Sinker Redwood top matched with African Blackwood back and sides, a really collectible piece.
Preston Thompson Guitars from America is noted for paying tribute to best Pre-war guitars. For this time we will bring one 12-fret All-KOA OO model. If you are tired of all the OMs and Dreadnoughts, this smaller yet great sounding guitar will be a nice choice.
Another American guitar brand Goodall Guitars, and Hawaiian Koa is one of their most featured wood choice. Generally speaking, it’s hard to balance the treble and bass parts of guitars made of Koa, especially the low ends are always lack of strength. But the sweet sound of this solid KOA guitar is great in both balance and strength. This is another one to add to your personal collection.
Ayers from Taiwan will bring a remarkable guitar series with koi inlay. The vivid pattern of koi playing in the water is co-designed by Guitar Square and Ayers, and is quite a work of art.The quality of this model with old Alpine Spruce top and Cocobolo back and sides is at the top level in the world, both in appearance and in materials.
Ayers’ classical models such as 04, 07, AS and DS have all been upgraded in 2018 with better bracing design and more clear sound. The newly-added Ayers’ classic logo of sun has given these guitars a better brand recognition.
