This guitar has a big, full and thick quality of sound - very plump and wholesome. In the spirit of Bouchet it is also very responsive thanks in part to the light internal bracing and choice of spruce for the top - Tacchi is extremely selective with his materials, both in the intrinsic properties of the wood and how it's cut. It has a huge dynamic range and has an assertive quality of sound when played at any volume level. Condition-wise, it did have some minor damage in 2008 when it was first shipped out of Italy. Although the guitar was well-repaired here in the USA, Andrea never forgot the guitar (Andrea was very fond of it upon completion) and wanted the opportunity to re-visit the guitar himself. So when we re-acquired the guitar in 2020 we sent it to him and he was delighted to find that the guitar had its original character in full. Andrea delicately re-did the repairs and did some setup work by adding thickness to the fingerboard above the 12th fret, allowing for plenty of bone at the saddle with easy action for the player's left hand. Some finish touch-up has left the guitar in beautiful condition. It has a gorgeous aesthetic as well - the timeless shapes, curves and understated elegance of Bouchet comes together here under the artful hands of one of the great contemporary masters.Orfeo Magazine article on Tacchi, Locatto and Frignani
