Model SAE-13

European Union: € 2.750,- (incl. 21% VAT)
Outside European Union: € 2.273,- (excl. 21% VAT)
Shipping costs not included.

SAE-13 is a new model by Eimers Guitars. A Maccaferri style guitar with F sound holes inspired by the famous guitar maker Di Mauro. Like model Amati this guitar has F sound holes. This gives the guitar a much more delicate sound. Good balanced and projection with a nice round tone. Responsible for this unique sound is the combination of the trapezium bracing supporting the top and the laminated flamed Maple back and sides. The scale length is 67 cm, 14-th fret to the body.

Model SAE-13 is named after my son, Stochelo Adrianus Eimers. I designed the guitar when he was 13 years old.

Optional

Back and sides made from solid flamed Maple. This choice contributes to the defined sound. Other woods and finished are possible. The guitar is also available for left handed players (no extra costs).

Options

All models presented on the website are standard delivered in a specific setup like woods, finish and hardware (tailpiece, tuners, pickup and hard shell guitar case). The options presented here will offer you the possibility to make changes to the guitar according your personal preferences. Please note that the woods I suggest for the guitars (see standard description with each model) are considered the optimal combination. A change of wood may affect the sound of the guitar. Choosing any option will affect the price. The exact additional price(s) will be written down and presented to you in the order form. I am happy to go over your wishes and discuss the possibilities.

Wood for the top

All guitars have very closed grain European Spruce (see image)

Alternatives:

Wood for the back and sides

There is a large variety of hard wood and tropical wood available for building instruments. It is impossible to keep all these different woods in stock. Let me know what you are looking for and I will inform you about the possibilities. I offer both solid wood and veneers for back and sides. For solid wood guitar traditionally Indian Palisander (Rosewood) is used. Laminated guitars are made from 3 layers of veneers: an inside layer of Mahogany, middle layer of Polar and an outside (visible) layer of Brazilian Palisander (image 1, 2 and 3) or Indian Palisander (image 7 and 8).

Alternative veneers:

  • Birdseye Maple (image 6)
  • Flamed Maple (image 5)
  • Zebrano (image 4)
  • Coromandel
  • Other veneers: (call or e-mail)

Alternative solid woods:

  • Koa
