  • Comments:

    Per Hallgren has been successfully making fine classical guitars in Sweden since 1990 and has produced more than two hundred.
    This is another that is of immediate high quality with a full bass and a very clear singing treble that has impressive sustain and bloom. It comes across as a loud instrument with plenty of projection combined with a very pleasing dynamic range and tone colours.
    There is nothing negative to find or to say about this guitar. On the contrary, it is strikingly handsome, beautifully constructed, tastefully decorated and finished, with sound quality to match - and all at very competitive price for a concert guitar of this quality.
