Daniel Hoban 'Aurelia' Classical Preowned 2019

Inspired by the works of the old Spanish masters Torres and Santos Hernandez, Melbourne luthier Daniel Hoban's classical guitars are lightly constructed from traditional tonewoods, with a Spanish heel neck joint, fan-braced soundboard, hand crafted rosette and a french polish finish.

This beautiful handmade guitar was built for the Granada Guitar Festival, with a body shape based on a 1930 Santos Hernandez. It features dual sound ports and a modified fan bracing system, which delivers a full tone and a powerful voice.

The tonewoods are of the highest grade possible - Carpathian Spruce top, Macassar ebony back-and-sides, a Madagascar rosewood bridge and ebony fretboard with 20" radius. It also has a hand-applied french polish finish, and ultra-high grade Irving Sloane tuners by Waverly.

It's in great condition, with some small dings to the binding and some light playwear. It sounds enormous, with a rich, authoritative tone. A wonderful handmade guitar by a fantastic local luthier. Includes hardshell case.
