  • Comments:

    Stefan Nitschke is a young German maker who has had practical guidance from Gerhard Oldiges and is producing finely-crafted instruments; this one every much in Hermann Hauser style; not just in appearance but also in sound. With an F# primary air resonance, like many Hausers, the guitar has a deep, resonant bass combined with a clear, singing treble and good volume throughout.
    This is the first we have bought from this maker but if they all come like this, it certainly won't be the last. A very fine, refined instrument at very competitive price.
