US $.5200 Paul Fischer Virtuoso model spruce 1993, Ft Collins USA - Withdrawn

- Scale length (mm) 650
- Nut width (mm) 52

This is a great example of Fischer's 'Virtuoso' model which is more traditionally built and pre-dates his 'taut' models.
Fischer worked with David Rubio from the '1960s to the mid-'70s when he began crafting his own guitars. He has retired from building.
This guitar has a very fine spruce top with considerable cross grain. The back/sides are nicely figured Brazilian (CSA) Rosewood.
The binding, back center strip, head veneer,foot wedge and tuning machine buttons are all made of Snakewood.
*The tuners are Rodgers.
The rosette and matching tie block are striking and very unique. It is very comfortable and easy to play.
Can only ship within the USA due to cites.
$5200

Every time I see a Fischer guitar I am struck by the beauty of the woods and his craftsmanship.

Really beautiful! I just moved to Boulder. I love the sound the Brasil Guitar Duo can get from these guitars.

Oh myyyyy, that is a fantastic price for this gorgeous instrument. It is a shame that you can’t ship outside USA. I’d have bought it on the spot.
