Roland’s latest success in his career was achieved in 2016 by winning the 1st place like the grand prize winner at the Six String Theory Jazz Guitar competition in Los Angeles. The members of the jury were among the greatest jazz guitarists of the world such as Pat Martino, John Scofield, Mike Stern, Lee Ritenour and Nir Felder.

A BEAUTY ALL ITS OWN!

S2387 GA35 NAT_FC4_DavdiZaharik_011017This GA-35 is certainly one of our most unique creations made to date! This custom order is from a guitar lover in British Columbia who asked for a standard GA-35 (chambered mahogany body with carved top) using extraordinary figured wood. This one incorporates a Buckeye Burl top and headstock with highly figured mahogany body and neck, black binding, gold hardware, and ebony fingerboard, tuning knobs and volume/tone knobs. We ordered the slab and cut and filled it specifically for this instrument.
