  • Comments:

    Here 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 in years past, developing his skills some time ago with Enrico Bottelli and Daniele Chiesa.
    This one has body resonance around F and a lovely warm character. 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 so popular because of their elegant appearance, fine finish, beautiful sounds and attractive price.
