2014 Paulino Bernabe "Concierto" CD/CO
|Back & Sides:
This is a classic-sounding and playing Bernabe concert guitar. As is typical from this period, it features striking materials including a beautiful figured set of cocobolo, and is appointed with some beautiful inlay work, particularly in the rosette and top purfling. Like his higher models, sides in this one are doubled, resulting in additional projection due to the additional vibration restricted to the soundboard. Sound is big, hearty and full, yet very balanced and clear at the same time. The guitar plays and sounds fantastic, and although a used guitar, it has only some very minor playing wear on the top and is in otherwise excellent condition.
