  • Comments:

    This is a stunningly beautiful instrument, with the Madagascan rosewood back & sides and silky spruce front. Daniele Chiesa's design and craftsmanship are always truly excellent and tasteful.
    The sound is equally impressive with creamy, smooth, singing trebles and a rich bass and middle. A really musical guitar; delightful to look at and with the strength and warmth of sound that so many people search for. Outstanding value from this talented maker.

"The close relationship Miles Roberts has with us, the makers, results in producing some quite special and unique instruments that we otherwise would not have made. Knowing more about music than the average maker, and understanding our trade better than most guitarists, Miles is the perfect bridge between the two. I am proud to have my instruments promoted and sold by Kent Guitar Classics. Lo stretto rapporto che Miles ha con noi liutai ci permette di realizzare strumenti speciali che probabilmente non faremmo altrimenti. Con una migliore conoscenza della musica che molti liutai e della liuteria che molti chitarristi, Miles è il perfetto mediatore tra i due. Sono molto contento che i miei strumenti siano offerti da Kent Guitar Classics."
