25th Anniversary Dutch Auction

Celebrating 25 years, each month in 2018 will feature an auction for a new Williams guitar.

July 2018

This month's auction features a tui model with African blackwood back and sides. Its tone is strong and clear, well balanced with the richness of the Waingarara kauri soundboard. It has darker accents of purple heart, burgandy burl and ziricote binding which give it an elegant look. The reserve price for this instrument is set at $9000 and the auction expires at the end of July. Please see below for more details and photos of the instrument.
