Another beautifully made guitar from Carlos Juan Busquiel, this time with African rosewood for the back and sides - and Carlos picked a dramatic set with contrasting dark/light elements throughout. 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. Lightly braced with only 5 fans and thin bridge plate, it also has 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.Photos taken during this guitar's construction.
