This is a beautiful concert instrument featuring several unique and striking design elements. Materials are very high quality and a pleasure to look at, including a perfectly quarter-sawn spruce top and flamed maple back and sides, as well as a flamed maple neck. Snakewood is used in the binding, heel cap and back center strip, framing the guitar beautifully with its contrasting dark-brownish hue. The meticulously layered headstock is in 3 pieces of maple and 2 pieces of palo escrito (with padauk for the back headplate), which "opens" elegantly into the neck, when viewed from behind. To top it all off, there is a subtle use of various colors (blue, yellow, red) in the rosette, tie block, top purfling, back center seam and even in the top layer of head veneer inlay, barely noticeable with the naked eye, but definitely contributing to the unique look and feel of this instrument. It is fitted with custom gold Evo frets, and Schaller GrandTune frictionless machines. The shellac finish is applied with a level of attention to detail and perfection found in very few makers. The sound is extremely responsive and open, with plenty of volume and character. The trebles are very clear and full, and the basses are deep with a nice bouncy response. Playability is a dream with very low action and shorter scale length. It is also fitted with a 20th fret for repertoire requiring a high c natural. Overall, a beautiful-sounding and intricately made concert guitar for a great price.
