Description

This is a great, full-size concert instrument built in the classic Velazquez style - lightweight yet sturdy build, with a firm sound that is strongly reminiscent of the "teutonic" style as developed by Hermann Hauser I and carried on by Hermann Hauser II - brilliant, sparkling trebles and steady basses are the standout tonal qualities - fans of Julian Bream's sound will immediately identify with this instrument. The fundamental of every note is crystal clear yet the resonance coming out of the box adds a nice rich fullness to the body of each note. The result is clean, pure tone with razor-sharp separation between all voices. Playability is very easy thanks to the sleek shape and contour of the neck. Materials are stunning including a gorgeous dark and well-aged spruce top covered in bearclaw and cross-grain silk, with a set of jaw-dropping CSA rosewood with both "birdseye" and "flamed" figuring - which is extremely rare. Condition is near-mint - this guitar looks practically brand-new and of course has no history of damage or repairs. Overall a top example by one of the great iconic makers of the last 7 decades.
