  • Comments:

    The instruments of Andrea Tacchi have been highly-revered and greatly sought-after for a long time now. This guitar serves to demonstrate the high level of craftsmanship, elegance and refinement for which Andrea is so deservedly well-known.
    The sound is rich and velvety, with impressive clarity and sustain. The F# air resonance provides ample depth of bass without taking anything from the 1st string. More to be said about the sound when it has chance to settle.
    With few instruments being produced each year and with a long waiting list, any new owner is surely very fortunate.
