Luthier John Buscarino has developed legendary status in the archtop guitar niche; and while his nylon string guitars don't surface every day, he should be equally well regarded in the realm of the "crossover" instruments as well. This "Grand Cabaret" features a Cedar / Adirondack Spruce double top, for maximum responsiveness and power (and truthfully, if you're the kind of player looking for nylon-strung crossover with seemingly limitless dynamic range and headroom, we're inclined to believe it doesn't get much better than this). A carved Madagascar Rosewood body ensures beauty of looks and sound, producing a very versatile guitar (it's got the warmth and roundness of sound to be a classical, and the punch to handle jazz).
Condition is excellent. There is a finish repair behind the bridge where the top took a small "string lash." Well done, but visible in the right light. Otherwise very clean inside and out.
