This is German's most recent concert model to be developed. Called the "Solista", it features his newest bracing system (which has previously only been used in his top, elite models). This bracing system fattens out the tone particularly in the trebles, giving the guitar an overall warmer sound. This system has been so well received in his elite models that he decided to introduce it in an instrument at a more modest price point while retaining the same high standard of sound - this was done by using Indian rosewood for the back and sides (instead of pricier, more exotic woods), lacquering the back and sides (the top remains French polished), and less ornate inlay work. Playability is a breeze with a very smooth and comfortable neck (it also has a 20th fret for a high c natural) and the guitar boasts enough power for any concert setting - in ensemble, or solo. All in this is a very versatile and strong instrument by any standard.
