  • Comments:

    Belgian maker Karel Dedain makes a variety of guitar models; all beautifully-made and working as excellent performance instruments. This one is a lattice-braced guitar with a tasteful balance between the extra speed & power that this construction gives whilst retaining a nearer-traditional sound-world. The workmanship and set-up are excellent. The sound is strong, quick and with a deep bass from its F# air resonance and with a crisp, singing treble.
    So for someone looking for a strong yet beautiful-sounding instrument, this is highly recommended.
