Firmly established as one of the top living builders, Edmund Blochinger is now in great demand world-wide. Pepe and Celin Romero have been great champions of these instruments and they both play on Blochinger guitars as one of their main concert instruments. Recently, Celino Romero has also been touring and recording on a cedar Blochinger as well. In Pepe's words, Blochinger is "one of the greatest" luthiers in the world today. They record wonderfully, and on stage, they have great projection and an outstanding quality of tone, audible all the way at the back of any large hall.
This guitar is in incredible condition with no damage or repairs. The tone is warm with a beautiful soft glow but is also very penetrating and clear. On stage, it has great power and an outstanding richness of tone. It bears the interesting dedication on the label "Homenaje a Joaquin Rodrigo" as Blochinger was asked to present this guitar at the centenary celebration of Joaquin Rodrigo's birth in Aranjuez, Spain, as part of an exhibition and celebration of the life of the maestro. World-class in every regard.
