Lawrence Nyberg has long been a prominent figure in the Canadian lutherie scene with a career that stretches back to the late 1980s. He served as an apprentice under Michael Dunn, the Vancouver based luthier who was arguably the first to produce Selmer Maccaferri guitars in the US, and has gone on to establish himself as one of the premiere luthiers of the Pacific North West.
This custom model was built in Nyberg's workshop on Hornby Island, BC. It features a Sitka spruce top, Indian rosewood back and sides, a mahogany neck, and a rosewood fingerboard which is partially cantilevered over the soundboard.. It includes a number of aesthetic upgrades including a stylized rosette, handmade brass tailpiece with a maple/walnut insert, a split maple/rosewood headstock veneer, and a rosewood heel cap with an MOP sail boat inlay. It has a short, 640mm scale for easy playing and also includes a bass bout sound port for improved monitoring. The rosewood bridge includes a bone saddle and the headstock has been fitted with a set of nickel Kluson tuners.
Sonically this instrument is very
pure and full, with a big, warm tone that is dry and direct. It is
especially strong in the bass and low mids which makes it an
exceptional rhythm guitar. Single note work is warm and fat sounding,
with a lot of roundness and depth to the tone.
