  • Comments:

    Dominique Delarue's concert guitars have been very much admired and sought-after in recent years. They are strong cedar guitars with richness of tone combined with clarity, focus and sparkle. This 2009 guitar; one we commissioned originally, is of typically high quality and is constructed in the same way as the current ones.
    A fine concert guitar; the choice of many professionals and at a lower price than a new one.
