  • Comments:

    Ivan Bruna is another fine maker who, some years ago, had training and guidance from Enrico Bottelli and makes in similar style. Very traditionally-built, this guitar has a wide tonal range with excellent balance and a strong, singing 1st string. With air resonance nearer F# than G, the bass is good and the whole instrument very well-balanced. It is also very comfortable to play; not only in the left hand comfort but the ease with which the sound comes out.
    A really pleasing instrument, sensibly-priced.
