DAVID DAILY – Cedar and Cocobola – 2003



2003, USA.  Solid cedar fan braced soundboard, beautifully figured cocobola back and sides, 650mm scale, 52 mm nut width, 20th fret, french polished finish, Irving Sloan gold “stippled” tuners.  Constructed after Daily spent time in the workshop of Antonio Marin Montero in Granada, Spain.  Having heard many Daily guitars built both before and after, this was a turning point in his career that resulted in consistently high quality concert guitars.  Daily’s approach to spruce and cedar at this time generally resulted in guitars that tended toward the center of the tone color spectrum.  This instrument has the full resonant tone of cedar with pronounced clarity.  The trebles and basses are ideally balanced and the projection is plenty for public performance.  A masterful guitar by a master luthier.  One small separation between the bridge and end of the guitar was expertly repaired by Ross Gutmeier, along with cleaning it up.  The body and neck angle are structurally as sound and aligned as when the guitar first came off the workbench.  Consequently this is a beautiful guitar with very, very slight signs of use.  The cocobola back and sides make it as pleasing to the eye, as to the ear.
