  • Comments:

    Here is another very fine instrument from Christopher Dean this time with cedar front. It is a very impressive and loud guitar with the power and projection that many players look for in lattice-fronted or double-top instruments - yet full of refinement, sustain and clarity. Perfectly suitable for playing baroque music as well as more recent repertoire, this is an ideal performer's instrument.

"Having known Miles for many years now I can say with some authority that dealing with him is a pleasure, due largely to my secure feeling that he, like me, has a genuine love of his subject. Over the years I have always been eager to hear feedback from both Miles, and his customers, and this has helped me greatly to bolster my own passion for the guitar and to refine my work ."
