  • Comments:

    Well this is an instrument that can easily leave you speechless. The quality of materials, the luxurious yet very tasteful and harmonious decoration, the high level of craft all combine to stunning effect. When on top of this, you grasp the quality of sounds that this guitar is capable of producing, then you realise this is surely at the top level of traditional guitar-making. Bravo Enrico.
    With strong influence from Hauser design, this instrument has both depth of bass with clarity and purity of treble. Finding a variety of tone colours comes with ease as does playability and response to vibrato.
    With limited output to achieve this build standard, such guitars are not easy to come across and we look forward to the next.
