Andrew White Guitars Cybele 1010
The Cybele is White’s attempt at something that sits between a parlour and a 000.
The guitar’s flamed maple binding is simply exquisite, and sets off the Sitka spruce top against the nicely figured rosewood back and sides. The spruce top on the Cybele has tonnes of character, an evenness to the grain pattern that elevates it above the usual.
The guitar fits to the body nicely when seated (which is where you’ll start playing it as this guitar lacks a neck-side strap pin), and the satin finish on the comfortable C-shaped neck mean that your fretting hand will be racing around with no interruption.
“A stunning instrument regardless of price or provenance.”
