East Indian rosewood - quarter-sawn, straight grained timber with a very appealing, silky texture. There is no decorative centre-strip, drawing your eye to the grain character of the wood.
European spruce - a lovely silky top with a very elegant rosette and slim, rosewood bridge with bone edgings.
Gotoh with white perloid buttons.
65cm with 19 frets on an ebony fingerboard
52mm at the nut with 42mm string spacing.
In very tidy condition without any cracks or repairs. The front polish has recently been refreshed / over-polished by Stephen Eden to remove an area of shallow nail marks that were only in the polish. There is one string ding at the 1st string and a few little marks to the back of the neck and head but overall it looks lovely and is in very good condition.
This was the first Daniele Chiesa guitar we purchased from him and the one that pursuaded us he was a talented and precise guitarmaker with a very good future.
This guitar is so pleasing and comfortable to play. With G air resonance, it has a warm, clear, traditional range of sounds that respond so well to expressive players ... it's really lovely and highly recommended.

"The close relationship Miles Roberts has with us, the makers, results in producing some quite special and unique instruments that we otherwise would not have made. Knowing more about music than the average maker, and understanding our trade better than most guitarists, Miles is the perfect bridge between the two. I am proud to have my instruments promoted and sold by Kent Guitar Classics. Lo stretto rapporto che Miles ha con noi liutai ci permette di realizzare strumenti speciali che probabilmente non faremmo altrimenti. Con una migliore conoscenza della musica che molti liutai e della liuteria che molti chitarristi, Miles è il perfetto mediatore tra i due. Sono molto contento che i miei strumenti siano offerti da Kent Guitar Classics."
