July 25, 2014

Alan Perlman is a San Francisco luthier known for his steel-string and classical guitars. He is highly respected for his repair and restoration work. Owned by Peghead Nation Fingerstyle Guitar instructor Stevie Coyle, this guitar is a faithful replica of a Stahl #6, an instrument originally built by the Larson Brothers in the 1920s. The guitar has a 12-fret neck with a slotted headstock and a domed top and back: the top is European spruce and the back is Brazilian rosewood, as are the sides. Stevie, who is also proprietor of Mighty Fine Guitars, in Lafayette, California (mightyfineguitars.com), says of the guitar “I have the good fortune to own a little high-end guitar shop, and I play lots of really fine guitars all the time, but I come home to this one, and I think, ‘Yeah, that’s my voice, that’s my desert-island guitar.’”

SPECS: 000 body with 12-fret neck. Solid European spruce top. Brazilian rosewood back and sides. Ebony fingerboard and bridge. 1¾-inch nut width. Open-geared Waverly tuning machines. perlmanguitars.com.
