Cohen is one of the best contemporary builders in the world today, arguably the best and most respected in England. His guitars have gorgeous quality of sound and play easily. Although the aesthetics are unique to Cohen, his guitars are structurally based on Hauser I and Torres designs – his work for many years both in doing repair work and building guitars for Julian Bream provided access and insight to these fine instruments first hand. The sound is bright and clear in character, but with great warmth and sophistication. Quick in response with very good projection, this is an excellent instrument for the concert stage. Materials are striking, including an aged spruce top, and a gorgeous flamed set of the exotic Grumixava for the back/sides.
