Encore Java Ebony Recital Model Classical Guitar

The Encore Java Ebony Recital Model Classical Guitar is made by the same luthier as the Concertina Concert Model. The back and sides are Java Ebony, and the top is solid cedar or spruce. The design, construction and sound are very similar to the Concert version and would compare quite favorably with guitars in music stores costing considerably more.  The scale length is 650mm. The width at the nut is 52mm. Position marker dots on the edge of the fretboard can be added for a small extra charge. A side port may also be added for an additional charge. A semi-hardshell case is included in the price.

    Hi Richard. I wanted to tell you how delighted I am to have purchased a guitar made by you. It is fantastic. It looks great and plays even better. It absolutely blows away a previous Spanish made $700.00 guitar. I played for a friend, and he loved the sound and thought it looked great. It plays with a nice easy manner. I will enjoy this guitar for many years to come. Thanks again for steering me in the right direction.

    My brother and I ordered two Encore Java Ebony Recital Model Classical Guitars. Beautiful guitars, excellent workmanship and sound quality. You definitely get your money's worth with these guitars! Also, Mr. Goyette was very helpful while on the phone in helping us order these beautiful instruments. The customer service is first class, and we are really enjoying these guitars! We are both senior guitar students, and our guitar teachers have also expressed their delight with our new instruments.

    Hi Richard! Just wanted to let you know that I received Encore Java Ebony Guitar. It arrived in beautiful condition as well as the wonderful case. I tuned the guitar with a Snark and played Crow River Waltz by Leo Keotke (one of my favorites) and loved it! It sounds just like my original classical guitar that I purchased in 1966 a Francisco Garcia. Wonderful guitar. This has the same tone and carries a true sound. Love it. Thanks so much. I really appreciate your guitars and business. Sincerely, John Paulson

    It's been a few years and thanks to your gracious and accommodating financing I was able to purchase a guitar from you. I've now moved forward and purchased steel string guitars but I continue to gravitate to the wider nut width because of my fat fingers. I sold my classical guitar I purchased from you because I thought I could accommodate the smaller nut width (sold it to a wonderful classical guitarist who loved the model), but I've started thinking I need to come back. I looked at the Java Ebony Recital and felt that might work for me but as always I'm on a fixed income so if you have a guitar you think would work for me at a beginner/intermediate level and at a monthly payment program I can live with, I'd like to consider coming back to a classical guitar.
    Hope you're doing well.

    I received my Encore Java Ebony Recital Model Classical Guitar about 5 weeks ago and have been getting to know it. I've owned at least ten guitars of various types over the years and this one rates at the top of the heap! First, the construction and craftsmanship are first rate - it looks absolutely gorgeous! The sound is lovely. I ordered the spruce top. The key tones ring with wonderful overtones and the bass is warm and resonant. I'm using the Savarez strings - medium tension that shipped with the guitar. I will eventually switch to a high tension string and can't wait to experience that sound. Richard is terrific to deal with. He set the guitar up just as I asked for - the intonation is perfect and the action works well for me. All in all, a terrific buy! Thank you Richard!
