  • Comments:

    Solveig Kirschner, married to Andreas Kirschner, is a fine luthier in her own right, only producing a few guitars each year due to family commitments.
    This is a truly lovely instrument with precise and very tidy workmanship, very tasteful aesthetics and highly impressive sound. It is set up beautifully and is comfortable to play. With air resonance just above F#, the sound has a pleasing depth of bass with a strong, sustaining, rounded treble and very even overall balance. It is also a strong guitar with volume perhaps greater than average to suit the professional player.
    Well, this is a really pleasing find and an opportunity for a lucky buyer. Highly recommended.
