  • Comments:

    Although making classical guitars since only 2010, Marco Bortolozzo produces very accurate and precise instruments; mainly copies or inspirations from Antonio de Torres. Marco credits luthier Dario Pontiggia for an unusually rapid pace of gaining technical ability and understanding. There is no doubt that he really understands the connection between the construction design, assembly and musical quality of the finished instruments ... and the workmanship and polishing is excellent.
    This particular guitar is based on the plantilla and layout of Torres FE09 with beautiful decoration taken from other typical Torres instruments. Not only is the feel and appearance very authentic but so is the sound which, from its below-E air resonance, has great depth of bass and penetrating treble. It is by necessity, very light in weight and is great fun to play. It has surprising power, energy, projection and offers ease of finding tonal variety.
    Sold within 24 hours of arrival, another one is planned for June 2014.
