Philipp Neumann Wave Classical Concert 2006 Ex Sigi Schwab

Philipp Neumann is a tallented luthier currently building from Antwerpen, Belgium. Each and every one of Philipp’s instruments is the product of a long, intensive and delicate process. He uses all the knowledge and experience he gathered while restoring antique instruments and building new ones to produce high quality instruments. He also never builds more than two guitars at the same time in order to ensure every detail is perfect. Philipp uses only the best quality tone woods and no prefabricated parts, and a guitar is not finished until it completely satisfies his demands for a clear and open sound with a complex and intriquing character.

This "Wave" model Classical concert guitar combines both traditional elements with a more modern approach in some ways. The back and sides are constructed using solid Indian Rosewood whereby the sides do not follow the shape of the top which has a slightly narrower waist, creating two unique and stylish soundholes in addition to a smaller triangular shaped soundhole just below the fingerboard fitted with an elegant but simple Rose. The spruce top uses a 7-fan bracing system which now -not hindered by the presence of a traditional soundhole- runs almost along the entire length the sounboard.  The elevated ebony fretboard fitted to the cedar neck provides comfort and offers easier access to the higher frets. The entirety of the instrument was finished using a very labour-intensive French Polish style finish.

This particular instrument once belonged to Sigi Schwab, a well known German guitarplayer who has performed on more than 15,000 recordings for film, television, and as an accompanist to various artists. He was also quoted saying the following about Philip Neumann:

"Philipp Neumann is a stroke of luck for the guitar scene. He is not only one of the most innovative guitar makers of our time, whose results are electrifying - but he is also to great extent focused on the art of guitar making of long gone periods and the lovingly, conscientious restoration of old, exclusive master instruments based on up-to-date scientific methods. As I have already said: a stroke of luck."

This instrument would have cost upwards of €9000 new in 2006. Currently the instrument is in "Very Good" condition; It has some dings and "angelhair" playwear in the delicate finish of both the neck and body but still plays and sounds stunning. The previous owner has added a rosewood armrest to further improve comfort. Included is a non-original Fender gigbag.
