Barney Classical Guitar


I have been building guitars for over 30 years.
I am well known for my archtop guitars, but
I have also been building classical guitars
since 1968. I built 30 classical guitars
before I built my first archtop & have
since built over 100 classicals.

I am a supplier of tone woods to other builders, & therefore I can use my own top quality woods for my guitars without an additional cost to my customers. I build with Brazilian Rosewood with only $400.00 up charge.You can choose spruce or cedar tops &
from many varieties of woods forthe body of
the instrument. My tops use a lattice
brace design for goodvolume,
great clarity, & note separation.

I usually have some of my guitars on hand for you
to try at my shop. I amalso an importer of some handmade guitars from Brazil. These are moremoderately priced guitars & I
completely set up & tweak them
before I sell them.

I will work with you to your specs on any guitar. All guitars come with ahardshell case included in the price. Pricing is from

$3500 to $4700

on myhandmade guitars. Standard
Indian or Amazon Rosewood guitars are

$3500 to $4300,

Brazilian Rosewood guitars are from

$3900 to $4700.

The imported Brazilian handmade
guitars are from

$1200 to $2000.

Any of these custom guitars can be tailored to suit your desires and specifications. Prices include either a floating or built-in pickup (archtops) and a hard shell case: there is an additional charge for a second pickup. Any model can be made as a seven-string (archtops) for $300.00 additional charge.
