This beautiful instrument from Kenneth Brogger features several unique details. First of all, it is made with a single piece of flamed maple for the back - quite extraordinary and beautiful! And like his "Stradivarius" model, Kenneth added inlay in the rosewood head (no relief) but with this instrument - in maple, which beautifully complements the back and sides. The top, back and sides are also trimmed out with half-herringbone in the purfling - perfectly executed. We congratulate Kenneth on this effort - both the design and the execution to his same uncompromising, perfect standard. Overall, an aesthetic masterpiece. The sound is as profound as its appearance. It is quite complex - warm yet clear, with a beautiful, lyrical quality in the treble that is found in older instruments, for which Kenneth has great fondness. Basses are full and round. Overall, a very satisfying and beautiful tone across all registers.

Kenneth Brogger is Denmark's top builder - and one of Europe's best makers - of traditional Spanish-style guitars in his generation. He has been active for over a quarter of a century as a luthier, writer, restorer of old instruments and museum exhibitor. As a result of his tireless efforts, Brogger has become highly regarded in his native country, and was honored by the Queen of Denmark in 1997 when he was awarded the "Applied Arts Prize of 1879" and a silver Hetsch Medal, the highest recognition in the field of artisan craftsmanship. His building style is very reminiscent of the old Spanish masters (Garcia, Simplicio, Fleta) yet shows signs of the French and Granada schools (Bouchet, Friederich, Marin) as well.
