Please Call to Inquire


2010 Marchione 20th Anniversary Classical Guitar-Sold

  • African Blackwood back & sides
  • Old Alpine Spruce top
  • Ebony fretboard
  • Hot Hide glue construction
  • French Polish finish
  • The exquisite rosette was painstakingly handmade in Stephen's studio in the traditional Spanish style - with all wood, individual tiles, and banding
  • Double clear pickguards
  • Clear pickguard south of the bridge
  • Base on Ramirez classical
  • A true, professional, concert level instrument
  • Calton custom flight case
  • Excellent condition
  • Orchestral voice, a bellowing bass and soaring trebles
  • In Stephen's words: My Classical design combines the ease of playability and tonal accuracy of a Gilbert guitar, the warmth and richness of tone of a Fleta, and the power and projection of a Rodriguez Jr. guitar from the 1970s.

  • Also worth mentioning is that Stephen's good friend and renowned violinmaker Guy Rabut gave him Classical Guitar top wood in Cedar and Spruce.

    Guy purchased this wood while in Violin School in the early 1970s and then never used it as he has only made bowed instruments. He gave it all to Stephen in the late 90s and it is the foundation to a great Classical Guitar build. Stephen feels fortunate that he can offer my customers such rare and properly aged tone woods.
