This is a first time that we had opportunity to see and play on of these instruments from a maker whose reputation is on the rise. The workmanship, attention to detail and tasteful design are all of high level.
The sound is clear, warm and strong. With air resonance around F, the bass is deep and rich, with a full centre and clear treble; all impressive. With only positive things to say about it, this is a highly recommended guitar at very competitive price.
