Indian rosewood with purflings featuring a red-colour Australian Jarra.

Graf with black buttons
65cm. 19 frets.
52 mm at the nut.
In very near new condition - this is secondhand but with hardly a mark on it.
All shellac french-polished.
Very handsome and built with precision.
Andreas Kirschner is a young and talented maker in Germany making both fan-strutted guitars and double-top guitars. His guitars display a high level of precision in the building together with a tasteful sense of decoration.
The sound of these guitars is very focussed with a clear and strongly-projecting energy. They are relatively loud and quick under the right hand. With air resonance around F#, this one has good depth of bass combined with a clear, strong treble.
Undoubtedly, a professional level concert guitar that is comfortable to play, easy on the eye and sensibly priced.
