Warren White


Warren was a local icon and a guitar maker of legendary proportions.  Due to personal issues he lived as a homeless person and died tragically in a fire keeping himself warm.  Along with Eugene and Tony Murray his career is emblematic of the first wave of great American Classical guitar makers in California.  This guitar is to my ears the best sounding old world (Santos Hernandez) flamenco guitar I have ever heard.  Its tone is dry and crisp.  I'm in the process of putting geared tuners on in place of the old world tuners due to their ease of play and 5 to 1 ratio, allowing for perfect fine tuning.

$5000
