Rafal Turkowiak concert classical guitar 18

Rafal Turkowiak classical guitar #18 (2008)

Here is one of Rafał Turkowiak’s early guitars. All solid, master grade wood construction with raised fingerboard. Nicely decorated with a natural star-shaped bone. The scale is 665 mm and the nut is 53 mm. The guitar is perfectly adjusted making it easy to play – the asymmetrical neck is really comfortable. Full sound, with long and even sustain.


This guitar was recently renovated by Mr, Turkowiak himself and looks like new. There is one healed crack at the upper bout of the top (insignificant place).
