It feels like my birthday when I receive a Bashkin in the shop - he's my favorite modern builder! I played this guitar when the owner received it back in 2011, and I told him it was the best modern finger style guitar I've played, and nine years later that's probably still true - or at least top three. If you even brush the strings, the notes just leap out of the sound hole. Love that crazy dark African blackwood too. This guitar is #100 that he's built. Michael tells me this one would be over $16K to build today. Comes with custom Hoffee case ($1200 value). Full build sheet available upon request.
