We have photos of what promises to be an absolutely stunning new guitar just being finished up for us by Italian luthier Enrico Bottelli. The instrument is a spruce and CSA rosewood classical that Enrico tells us is similar in construction to the last guitar we had from him – this 2015 ‘Twelve’ model – in that it is a modified Hauser-style guitar, but with a lighter top for more power (with less effort by the player) without any loss of sustain or roundness of tone. The three-piece back is highly figured and the neck is made from beautifully flamed Honduran mahogany. Enrico tells us he wanted to feature the natural beauty of the wood in this guitar.
