Kenneth Brogger is Denmark's top builder - and one of Europe's best makers - of traditional Spanish-style guitars in his generation. He has been active for over a quarter of a century as a luthier, writer, restorer of old instruments and museum exhibitor. As a result of his tireless efforts, Brogger has become highly regarded in his native country, and was honored by the Queen of Denmark in 1997 when he was awarded the "Applied Arts Prize of 1879" and a silver Hetsch Medal, the highest recognition in the field of artisan craftsmanship.


This guitar has a wonderful, robust tone - very bright and fast-responding with ample clarity and projection for the concert stage. His building style is very reminiscent of the old Spanish masters (Garcia, Simplicio, Fleta) yet shows signs of the French and Granada schools (Bouchet, Friederich, Marin) as well. The guitar is easy to play, has a very smooth neck and is very even across all registers. Materials are first class - particularly the CSA rosewood on the back and sides with the dramatic grain patterns throughout. Although a used instrument, it was well-cared for and has no cracks or repairs. A fantastic concert and recording guitar in every way.
