Tiorbino by Ivo Magherini (2017)

September 8, 2022

For Sale

Tiorbino by Ivo Magherini (2017)

I have decided to sell my Tiorbino after Venere, made by Ivo Magherini in 2017. It is a superb instrument and a very exact copy of the original. It  is in excellent “like new” condition.

The tiorbino has a superb, strong, and bright tone throughout and really good projection. The stopped string length is 52.5 cm, and the extension is 97 cm. Excellent action throughout and a very comfortable instrument to play, since the body is so small and the neck really nice and thin.

The instrument comes with a custom case by Victor Vorko, it is ultra lightweight and has a backpack option.

The instrument is in Paris.

Baroque guitar by Régis Floury (2019)

August 25, 2022

For Sale

This baroque guitar has been built in 2019 by Régis Floury, an instrument manufacturer located in Vigo, Galicia. It is made with old traditional techniques without machinery. 

The box is made of walnut and maple with ebony fillets. The harmonic top is in spruce. The neck is in maple covered with a marquetry of speckled maple and black maple.

The fingerboard and bridge are made of ebony. The headstock marquetry is made with amaranth, speckled maple, pear, and black maple. The outer rosette as well as the contour decoration (pistagne) are made entirely by hand with ebony and vegetal ivory.

The soundboard has a layer of wax as it was traditionally done and the rest of the instruments is varnished with the tampon with shellac. 

The vibrating length is 665mm. The bridge allows to fix the space between the strings as the musician considers it for his way of playing. It has a soft, delicate and warm sound.

The instrument comes with a basic travel case.

The guitar is in Spain, in Vigo. You can try it without any problem at the workshop. The instrument can be sent by carrier. The transport costs will be charged to the buyer.

Payments will be made in cash or by bank transfer and a receipt will be issued for each payment. To lock in a purchase option, the customer can pay a deposit of 300 euros to guarantee the purchase of the instrument. If the customer withdraws and does not comply with the purchase of the instrument, he will lose the said deposit.

For any further information you can send an email to regisfloury@gmail.com
