  • Comments:

    Enrico Bottelli guitars are renowned for highest level of craftsmanship combined with well-balanced refinement of sound and outstanding physical beauty
    This instrument has strong influence from late 1930's Hausers with both depth of bass, 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 are delighted to receive two of his fine guitars each year.
