Ottawa Folklore Centre Now Carrying Xaver Guitars
I am very pleased to announce that one of Ottawa's most prestigious guitar shops has agreed to carry my guitars. You can now check out my guitars at The Ottawa Folklore Centre - http://www.ottawafolklore.com - 1111 Bank Street, just a couple of blocks south of Lansdowne.
Newly Completed Guitars
I added three grand concert guitars to my list of currently avaiable guitars (one featuring an armrest and makorre sides and back; a second with figured maple sides and back and ebony binding; and a third with EI rosewood sides and back, a cutaway and armrest). All three of these instruments feature side soundports, and can be viewed in the picture gallery here, or on my separate webpage www.xaverguitars.ca or better yet, drop by my shop and try out this guitar for yourself. Call first to make sure I am in (613-656-4358).
