Earl Marsh makes wonderful classical guitars and his work is inspired by the great makers. Earl invites you (by appointment) to visit his studio where you can try guitars that are currently available for sale. Spend some time in a comfortable and quiet environment where the acoustics of the studio enable the guitarist to easily evaluate the sound, the quality and other attributes of the instrument.
All Earl S Marsh guitars have the unique feature of a built in double thickness binding on the bass side of the instrument. This provide for extra comfort because the binding rounding off is increased significantly. The binding will never wear away from friction of fabrics. The extra binding thickness provides for increased stiffness on the bass side of the soundboard giving a strong robust bass.
The soundboards are fashioned from the best European spruce which he selects personally from a wood store high up in the Swiss Alps. This is cut at the right time of the year and only at the correct phasing of the moon when the sap in not active and rising. To compliment the quality of the soundboard only the tightest grained spruce is used for the strutting and bracing.
There are lots of testimonials on Earl’s website so why not see what his customers think?
