  • Condition:

    The price has been substantially reduced to reflect this and to clear stock.

  • Comments:

    Although making classical guitars full-time since only 2010, Marco Bortolozzo produces very accurate and precise instruments; mainly copies or inspirations from Antonio de Torres. Having started out with good woodworking skills and with much of his own research, 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 is a reproduction of the Segovia Hauser of 1937, with final weight, resonance pitches etc., all very similar to the original. It is a very well-balanced instrument with pleasing depth and richness of bass, clear rounded treble and is really comfortable to play. Altogether a really impressive guitar at sensible price. Well recommended.
