Although thoroughly "Spanish" in its build, the aesthetic details on this guitar are drawn from Valerio's Italian roots. The "Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore" in Florence has particulary influenced the decorative motifs found in the rosette and tie-block, giving the guitar a very satisfying "architectural" look. Materials used are Western red cedar for the soundboard, paired with Indian rosewood back and sides, a Honduran cedar neck and African ebony fingerboard with 20 frets. Tuners are Hauser-style Alessi with ebony pegs. The guitar is finely French polished. The guitar boasts a robust, full sound - yet has ample clarity for a cedar without losing the thick, harmonically rich overtone content native to this wood. His instruments have been played most-notably by Andrea de Vitis and Pat Metheny, to name a couple of top guitarists. We are very pleased to have this guitar and look forward to many more!Photos of this guitar taken just after construction was completed
