The guitar includes a Hard shell case . This guitar was build as a sample for the 2002 Ithaca Guitar Festival. Shortly after the festival it was sent to Stanley Yates who kept it for several months. As a result of playing this guitar Stanley commissioned a guitar. The following quotation was made in reference to this guitar. Stanley Yates: "I really like the guitar you sent me, all in all this is definitely an instrument to make music on - a rare thing." The top is of a very special group of hand split 40 year old Western Red Cedar stock I purchased 10 or so years ago. Rare for cedar is the silking visible in the top. The finish is French polish with the top only French polish and the sides and back with a light over coat of lacquer over the French polish. The backs and sides are truly exceptional Brazilian Rosewood. The Brazilian rosewood was purchased and imported into the US in the early 1930's! It is over 77 years old. The binding is purplehart and the rosette is hand made by Jim Holler from spalted maple.
