Description

One of Europe's most interesting guitar makers. The guitar is heavier than most due to having extra-thick back and sides. This forces the top to do all the vibrating, making this guitar project extremely well while retaining all the clarity of the note. This instrument is extremely well-suited to ensemble work (with percussion ensemble, orchestra, piano, etc.) and Pepe Romero has had great success performing on these guitars for concerto work while on tour in Europe. It is also used by members of guitar ensembles, including the Brazilian Guitar Quartet and Guitart Quartet.

This 1999 model is made with beautiful rosewood for the back and sides. These guitars also have a unique aesthetic - very simple design in the headstock, rosette and purfling, which allows for the dramatic natural elements to stand out. Condition is excellent.

A hardshell case is included with this guitar.
