Russian guitar maker Mijail Kharash has had an exciting path. From Leningrad, where he was born, to Israel after the collapse of the USSR, he was finally settled in Spain, where he learned the excellent craft of guitar making. Through contact with John Ray, José Vigil, and more, he developed masterful skills in the art of woodworking and immersed himself in the intricacies of the Spanish handmade guitar tradition. Recently, Mijail’s dedication was rewarded with second prize in the Antonio Marin Montero guitar-making competition.
This very light guitar from Mijail impresses us because of its warm and open sound character and the very direct response when playing. The beautiful cedar top gives it a wonderfully smooth and silky sound. The back and sides are made of fine Madagascar rosewood. It is great fun to play this guitar and explore its timbres. The price-performance ratio of this Kharash is outstanding, and the 63 cm scale length of this particular guitar makes it amazingly comfortable to play.
