As it’s National #DrinkWine Day we thought it would be a good time to remind you that we give you a bottle of something appropriate with each of our Connoisseur Collection instruments:
RSC and FRSC – rioja
Dupont Busato – cognac
Catherwood – Irish whiskey
With people taking advantage of our ‘open by appointment’ on Saturday to try the Dupont guitars in stock we’re surprised we have any left 😉
Joking aside, we strongly recommend that if you are interested in one of the two Busatos in stock you book your slot at The Old Dairy sooner rather than later as we doubt they’ll be there for too much longer.
Here are the links if you’d like to check them out online in advance of booking: Royale: Luxe:
Please note: the Royale currently in stock is slightly different to the one pictured.
Having a Busato Royale back in The Old Dairy makes us, once again, appreciate the sheer craftsmanship that goes into all our instruments but particularly into those in the Connoisseur Collection.
With back and sides from old, traditionally seasoned (and CITES certified) Rio Rosewood the arched back of the Royale looks seamless. We know there is a seam but, such is the skill of master luthier Maurice Dupont, it is invisible to the eye. Couple that with the spruce top, yellowed with age (no need for tints here!), and close-grained ebony and you can see why this instrument sits in the Connoisseur range. This is not just an instrument for you to enjoy but for your children and grandchildren too.
This guitar is currently available to try at The Old Dairy but we suggest you book a slot soon as it’s not likely to be with us for very long.
