This is a beautifully made guitar - indeed our second from this maker, whom we are very pleased to have met recently and been introduced to his guitars. The sound is just as solid as the build - it has a very compelling firmness in each note - the trebles are thick and weighty, as are the basses. Its fullness of sound still leaves ample room for a crystalline clarity across all registers. This is an instrument which lends itself beautifully to virtually any style of music from the Renaissance to the present. It is lightly braced with only 5 fans and a Bouchet-inspired "lateral" brace passing beneath the saddle-side of the bridge, notched to accommodate the 5 fan struts which terminate at an open harmonic bar to allow extra vibration to pass into the upper bout. This give it ample volume for the player seeking added power combined with a lush, traditional sound. We are very pleased to be offering this fine instrument by this very talented younger maker.
