I am very happy to introduce the 3rd La Senorita. La Senorita pays homage to the guitar outside of the "Classical" or "Flamenco" styles giving me the chance to play with the woods a little. Using a combination of Sitka Spruce for the soundboard and Swiss Pear for the back and sides has brought to life a beautiful sound and tone. The guitar has a mellow timbre with a subtle growl and purr to the bass and a singing, punchy treble, The notes across the board are beautifully even with excellent volume. The feel to the strings is one that can be both played delicately and with gusto and still achieve great projection and clarity. Above all this instrument is fantastic fun to play!

2016 Jazz Classical
This Jazz Classical is now for sale! It is, I suppose 2nd hand but has in actual fact never yet been sold. I made it in 2016 and it began life with the guitarist Dave Keary from Van Morrison. It was only on loan and was used in the recording studio around that time, since it's return to me I have kept it as my own instrument but can't quite justify keeping it as it only ever gets occasional playing.
The soundboard is very old sitka spruce and the back and sides are very rare and beautifully figured pau ferro sometimes referred to as santos rosewood. It is worth bearing in mind this is not a true rosewood.
The guitar is fretted with Evo Gold fret wire for an added aesthetic, fitted with a K&K Pure Classical pick up system and comes with a K&K external pre-amp which to my ear offers the best amplified nylon sound out there. This guitar is a lot of fun to play!
Fitted with Waverly tuners it is finished with tung oil. It comes with a Hiscox Pro II case.
Price £5000. Available from DK Classical Guitars
