An absolutely stunning guitar by one of Italy's most interesting guitar makers. The guitar is heavier than most due to having extra-thick back and sides. This forces the top to do all the vibrating, making this guitar project extremely well while retaining all the clarity of the note. This instrument is extremely well-suited to ensemble work (with percussion ensemble, orchestra, piano, etc.). Pepe Romero has had great success concertizing on these instruments for concerto work while on tour in Europe. It is also used by members of guitar ensembles, including the Brazilian Guitar Quartet and Guitart Quartet.
This 1993 model (named "Rescha") is made with breathtaking flamed maple for the back and sides and uses spruce for the soundboard. These guitars also have a unique aesthetic - very simple design in the headstock, rosette and purfling, which allows for the dramatic natural elements to stand out. Playability is a breeze with a comfortable neck shape. Although a second-hand instrument, condition is excellent with only minor wear in the finish. A tap plate has also been installed to protect the French polished top (back and sides are lacquered). Incredible and versatile instrument for the active concert artist looking for a rugged guitar that sounds great in any setting - solo or ensemble.
A hardshell case is included with this guitar.
