Description

This is Youri's latest concert guitar, which he feels is highly influenced by Torres and Hauser models. The first thing we noticed when we picked it up was its noticeably lightweight build which gives the guitar immediate sound when the string is ever so slightly moved. It has a huge, rich bottom-end and thick, creamy trebles. The guitar has noticeably great power as well - this could easily fill any concert hall. For this guitar Youri used flamed European maple for the back and sides and spruce for the soundboard. The rest of the materials were sourced from local woods - indeed last year Youri participated in the "Local Wood Challenge" where he was quite pleased with the results from the materials he tested out, particularly with alder, which he used for the neck and linings of this guitar, and with wild pear wood which he used for the fingerboard, bridge, headplate and bindings. The tasteful use of these materials has produced a very elegant aesthetic, and is well-executed and firmly traditional in all aspects of its build. As with previous instruments Youri has sent us, this is a substantial instrument considering this maker is so early in his career.
