Yulong Guo has been building guitars since 1983 and has gained a solid reputation in recent years for his high-quality student-level and concert-level double top guitars based on the soundboard designs of Antonius Mueller. In 2018, he entered the 2nd International "Antonio Marin Montero" Guitar Building Competition in Granada, Spain where he won second prize for his "Granada" model.


The Chamber Concert model is a professional model concert guitar, with double-top soundboard construction, consisting of two ultra thin layers of cedar with a layer of Nomex sandwiched in between to give the strength needed for the durability of the top. This model is available with lattice bracing for a full, balanced sound or with traditional fan bracing for amazing clarity and balance. Back and sides are of solid Indian rosewood with the back of arched construction with no bracing. The arched "violin back" gives the guitar amazing sound projection and volume making it ideal for concert performances. The upper bout of the body is sloped to give allow for a raised fingerboard in the style of Thomas Humphrey "Millennium" guitars. The fingerboard also has a 20th fret for repertoire requiring a high c natural in the trebles. A rosewood armrest, ultra smooth frets, soundport on the side, a slight radius in the fingerboard, a low string action and shorter 640 mm scale length make the Chamber Concert exceptionally easy and comfortable to play. Sound is velvety, smooth and balanced across all registers, and being a double-top, it is particularly powerful with a fast response. The warm, rounded trebles and deep basses are easily produced and seem to jump out of the instrument with even the slightest touch. Although a second-hand guitar, the guitar is in excellent, almost "like-new" condition.
