Description

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. Rosewood is used in the binding, back center strip and tie block, framing the guitar beautifully with its contrasting dark-brownish hue. The meticulously layered headstock is in 4 pieces of maple and 3 pieces of walnut (with rosewood front veneer), which "opens" elegantly into the neck, when viewed from behind. This guitar features more inlay work than in the standard model - including the same treatment to the heel area.

The top and head veneer have a layer of half-herringbone purfling to match the inner and outer extremities of the rosette. To top it all off, there is a subtle use of blue in the rosette, tie block, top purfling 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. 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. Although used, it is in excellent condition with only modest wear in the finish.
