    East Indian rosewood - with lovely, characterful grain markings. Very fine, single purfling lines, typical elegance of many French makers.

    European spruce - of beautiful, silky quality and with faint bearclaw markings in some areas. Constructed in lattice bracing format with some carbon fibre facing to some of the lattice struts. Finely-crafted, geometric rosette and matching purflings. Highly attractive rosewood bridge.

    In beautiful, original condition. Seemingly in as-new, mark-free condition but for safety's sake, we'll say 99.9% as new.

  • Comments:

    We have admired the guitars of Hugo Cuvilliez for some time since meeting him at the workshop of Dominique Delarue in the south of France. The quality of materials and of his workmanship is of the highest quality and very appealing.
    For a lattice guitar, the sound is free and strong yet with much traditional tone quality and ability to shape the sound. This really is an excellent concert guitar from a performance point of view combined with elegant style and beautiful craft. Highly recommended.
