    “This absolutely stunning guitar from Gurian’s New Hampshire workshop circa 1977 is an excellent example of why these guitars are becoming collector’s items.  This size 2 Grand Concert has mahogany back and sides, Sitka spruce top, ebony fingerboard, Brazillian redwood bridge, ivory nut and saddle. The rosette is a herringbone pattern which is duplicated on the wood binding of the guitar.

    The guitar has been refinished to match the original natural finish and is in near mint condition.  The sound is exquisite with sharp treble and melodious base and wonderful sustain.  The tone of this Gurian will stand up to all comers.  This guitar will easily fit into any collector’s collection as the good Gurians are becoming more rare with each passing year.  The guitar comes with hard shell case.”
