This is the top-of-the-line model from GV Rubio in every way. It is built with only his finest, most precious materials, features his unique and sophisticated bracing pattern, and shows off his most delicate, refined craftsmanship in the carving, inlay and finish work. Materials include a premium European spruce top from his reserve stock, high-grade Indian rosewood for the back and sides, and a mahogany neck with V-joint design, African ebony fingerboard with hidden cocobolo reinforcement. Sound of this instrument is also superb, with a rich, velvety texture to each note. It is also extremely responsive and loose, with plenty of volume for any concert setting. It is also fitted with a 20th fret for repertoire requiring a high c natural, as well as raised fingerboard for more comfortable playability in the upper registers. Although used it is in excellent condition with virtually no signs of prior use. Overall, a beautiful-sounding and intricately made concert guitar - this is German Vazquez Rubio at his absolute finest.
