Joshia De Jonge Classical
South American Rosewood
Sound: Clear, distinct, punchy, loud, even, balanced
48 hour trial, you pay shipping both ways if not keeping
This is an early example of Joshiaâ€™s work. Note that she didnâ€™t have her own labels printed yet in 1996, so she signed one of her fatherâ€™s (Sergei De Jonge)! (Sergei oversaw her building of this guitar, and probably had a hand in its construction).
The sound is that of a lattice-braced instrument butâ€”surprise!â€”itâ€™s actually fan braced. It features superb, concert level volume, tone, and playability.
The frets could stand to have their ends rounded (a $40 job by a luthier, or do it yourself) due to minute fretboard shrinkage over the yearsâ€¦not essential, however, as she plays just fine. Iâ€™m just being perfectionistic in my picky description here. Structurally like new, she has a few minor top dings and light scratches from playing use, but the finish is a light lacquerâ€”so not to worry.
This is the second Joshia that has passed through my hands. They are very compelling instruments. Alas, I cannot afford to keep herâ€¦
Joshia works for her father's guitar-making course and has two young sons, hence makes only three guitars per year. Her new instruments cost $11,000.
This guitar is for sale at only $4,200 (domestic shipping included). Contact me for an international shipping quote to your destination.
