  • Comments:

    The guitar of Walter Verreydt are simply exquisite ... the choice of timbers, the quality of workmanship, the fine decorative details and standard of polishing come together in something quite special.
    Being spruce and with traditional back and sides, this powerful guitar has a more traditional tone range than most cedar lattice guitars.
    This is a 64 scale version of the same model as played by Fernando Espi whose Cordoba Festival performance on a Verreydt guitar can be found on Youtube.
    A simply beautiful and impressive concert guitar.

"Immediately at our first meeting it was clear to me that Miles Roberts, unlike most guitarists, can put into words exactly the qualities of the guitar he examined and that he can describe precisely what he expects of a good instrument. Miles' wide vision, nourished by the many contacts with both guitarists and guitar makers, makes it possible for him to find the perfect match between the instrument in the Kent Guitar Classics’ collection and the buying guitarist. It is for a guitar maker most pleasant to work with someone who has an eye for the smallest details of the design, the construction and the decoration of an instrument: it stimulates to work on a higher level each time."
