  • Comments:

    Tobias Braun makes very high quality instruments often with exceptional material quality. With influences from 1912 Manuel Ramirez and 1924 Santos, these guitars are designed to maintain the quick, Spanish response of the smaller-bodied guitar combined with a rich, deep bass of larger Santos body.
    This one has immediate richness and strength of sound with a deep bass that holds the bottom octave well, combined with a powerful, rounded treble. A fine concert guitar with very impressive sound for performer, collector or anyone that appreciates the beauty of this level of craftsmanship.
