This instrument was built by German maker Sebastian Stenzel and is perhaps his most impressive masterpiece to date that we have seen. It is built with the new, slightly enlarged plantilla that Sebastian has been using almost exclusively for the last two years. As is typical of Stenzel guitars, this guitar has a vast range of modulation and sound colors. Its emphasis is on radiance and balance, a pure concert guitar with long sustain. Playability is superb, with excellent intonation - Stenzel uses the fret spacing techniques developed by engineer Ernst Frisch to provide the best intonation and playability possible. Materials for this particular guitar are stunning. For aesthetic and tonal qualities, this is a first-rate concert instrument by any standard.
