  • Comments:

    Andreas Kirschner is a talented maker and precise craftsman in Germany whose fan-strutted guitars and particularly his double-top guitars are very much in demand with a long waiting list now.
    His guitars display a high level of precision in the building together with a tasteful sense of decoration.
    The sound of these double-top guitars is very focussed, loud and very quick in release of the sound and return of the string that is so important for the fast, virtuosic player.
    This one has a deep sound with air resonance around or just below F# - giving a full depth of bass combined with the clear, strong treble.
    An impressive concert performance instrument designed for the professional performer that is comfortable to play, easy on the eye and sensibly priced.
