An old friend of 40 years' standing, guitarist, fellow band musician - and luthier - Ian Chisholm, made this beautiful classical guitar in 2005, and I acquired it recently. This little piece was written to show off its tone qualities. While I was putting the piece together, someone remarked, "That's reminiscent of..." - so that's what I called it.

Viewers note: I am NOT a classically-trained guitarist - just picked up a few bits and pieces of technique over the years.

Wow, having a classical guitar made by a long time friend is very special.
Nicely played.
The top does not look like it is cedar - can you share what woods he used ?
....the usual 650 mm scale and 2 inch nut ?
What nylon strings do you use, Will ?  hard tension or soft, what brand ?
