Notes: One luthier. One apprentice. Over 100 guitars a year. How does David Webber do it? Meet Igor.

Operating from a small workshop in North Vancouver, BC, Webber combines a rigorous commitment to handbuilt integrity with ingenious high tech tooling, applications that keep the quality up and the costs down. Igor is Webber's CNC (Computer Numerical Control) carving rig, a technology that until recently was so costly and complex only the largest factories could afford it. Webber's desktop version allows him to execute critical operations like dovetail fitting and logo routing with unvarying precision, with a consistency and quality hand builders of the past could only dream of. Over 700 guitars later, Igor also makes Dave one very productive guy.

This example is Webber's Jumbo model, an exceedingly comfortable body size with excellent balance and clarity, particularly well suited to the fingerstyle jazz player. Planed and braced to exceptional tolerances, this version weighs in at a mere 4 lb. 5 oz.. The body is crafted of dramatically figured black walnut, and ranges in color from pale cream to deep chocolate, with subtle mint highlights, and spectacular chevron bookmatching in the back. The voice has excellent balance and sustain, easily responsive for fingerstyle, and with ample headroom for vigorous pick style play. Action is effortless on a gentle light D neck profile that sits easily in the hand. Webber's handcrafted guitars are rarely seen on the vintage market, making this example in virtually unplayed condition a welcome find, and a best buy to boot.

Setup: This instrument is strung with medium gauge bronze strings (.013-.056). The guitar will accommodate lighter strings, according to preference.

Case: Original deluxe hardshell case with plush lining.
