Description

This is a pristine example of a great Blochinger. These instruments record wonderfully, and on stage, they have great projection and an outstanding quality of tone, audible all the way at the back of any large hall. As with all Blochinger guitars, this was built with exceptional materials - the aged and very dark spruce top perfectly quartered which allows for a lighter, thinner top but with added stiffness for a balanced but responsive tone. The CSA rosewood used for the back and sides has some lovely figuring throughout. It is in excellent condition with only some very minor playing wear in the finish. Tuners are the top-of-the-line Reischl "Superstar" model with gold plates. Playability is excellent with Blochinger's famous "one piece" neck with a very smooth and comfortable shape. Sounds is huge, with a beautiful, rich tone. World-class in every regard.

Background

Firmly established as one of the top living builders, master luthier Edmund Blochinger is now in great demand world-wide. He originally began building his guitars in the style of Hauser and Torres and in recent years has been influenced by Miguel Rodriguez's guitars from the early '60s. Many people regard these as having the precision and balance of a German instrument but with the responsiveness and energy of a southern Spanish guitar. For over three decades, Pepe and Celin Romero have been great champions of these instruments and they both play on Blochinger guitars regularly as one of their main concert instruments. Celino Romero has also been touring and recording on a cedar Blochinger as well. In Pepe's words, Blochinger is "one of the greatest" luthiers in the world today. Many other young professional players and competition winners also play Blochinger instruments.
