Angelo Vailati of Piacenza in Italy

  • Year:

    2013 - October

  • Body:

    Quarter-sawn East Indian rosewood with dark and varied colours of near-red, browns and greys. The beauty of the back is emphasised by omitting the centre-strip and by framing with attractive maple purflings and rosewood bindings.

  • Front:

    European spruce - a lovely silky, well quarter-sawn top with a very elegant rosette with rosewood & maple elements, matching rosewood & maple purfling and slim, bone-framed, rosewood bridge.

  • Tuners:

    Gotoh with Hauser-shaped, engraved side-plates and black buttons.

  • Scale:

    65cm with 19 frets on an ebony fingerboard

  • Neck Width:

    52mm at the nut with 42mm string spacing.

  • Weight:

    1522 grams

  • Condition:

    In near-new condition with only very faint little marks.
    The top corner of the back has some shirt button marks in an area only about 3cm x 1cm - could be rubbed and repolished.
    There are some really small, faint marks to the back of the neck and head - hard to see or feel.

  • Comments:

    These are instruments from an Italian maker who produces outstanding quality, traditional, fan-strutted guitars to a superb level of craft and finish - perhaps explained by having spent much time developing his skills some time ago with Enrico Bottelli and Daniele Chiesa.
    This one has body resonance just between F# & G. These uncomplicated guitars have super balance, depth of bass, clarity of treble and an overall singing quality that makes them easy and joyful to play.
    We are delighted to be able to have a regular supply of these instruments that are bound to be popular because of their elegant appearance, fine finish, beautiful sounds and reasonable price.
