2008 Oscar Trezzini SP/CSAR
|Back & Sides:
Oscar Trezzini started as a guitar maker in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1982, under the tutelage of luthiers Pedro Malossetti and Héctor Curto. His early efforts produced a dazzling variety of different guitar types before he gradually refined his techniques and settled on the classical model, which he now builds exclusively. In recent years, Trezzini has benefitted from the advice of his friend and mentor Dominique Field, as he seeks to continually improve and refine his style and sound. This particular instrument features some beautiful aesthetics including the highly refined rosette (it almost requires the use of magnifying glass to truly appreciate). Materials are stunning - it has gorgeous rosewood for the back/sides with sapwood highlights. Tuning machines are top-quality Rodgers from England. Sound is superb - it has excellent clarity and power, with a very focused, deep natural tone. Although a spruce-top, it is has a harmonically-rich texture that gives it a very intriguing, mysterious quality. Overall, a top-level concert and recording instrument for the discriminating performer.
