ROLF EICHINGER – 640 Scale – Euro Spruce and CSA Rosewood – 2002



2002, Spain. Solid European spruce soundboard, well quartersawn CSA rosewood back and sides, 640 mm scale, 51 mm nut width, 12 hole tieblock converted from 6 holes by Gutmeier, french polished, Sloan “Stippled” tuners with ivoroid buttons, fret markers at V and VII. Initially building guitars in Germany, Eichinger continued his work in Granada, Spain, until he passed in 2009. He built 300 guitars during a 30 year career and was a mentor to many luthiers. The clean workmanship, unique rosette, and use of quartersawn CSA rosewood are evidence of his expertise and commitment to quality. This guitar has had one owner. The lively response and quick attack is characteristic of Granada instruments. There is a round smooth spruce tone which yields great clarity. Balanced sound with very good projection. The guitar has been well played in by the professional who owned it, so the sound has a maturity that only comes with time. The scale and nut width make this instrument very easy to play. Usual signs of use with some fingernail impressions, and slight wear to the french polish in the usual places.
