This is Noppakorn Auesirinucroch (left) with three of his fellow students. Noppakorn studies with Enno Voorhorst at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag and came to the workshop to try a guitar. His friends, two classical guitar players and a classical saxofoon player, accompanied him.
Noppakorn wants a maple – bearclaw spruce guitar. Maple guitars are getting more and more populair now. Soon there will be one available at GSI about which I will post later on.
Especially for the blog Noppakorn played a fragment of l’Aube du dernier jour by Francis Kleynjans. The brand new guitar in the video is a concert model with a spruce top and rosewood back and sides, an instrument waiting to be sent to its new owner, which explains the protection underneath the bridge.
