  • Comments:

    The guitars 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.
    This maple-bodied instrument with spruce front has a very clear tone with perhaps less overtones than many others. Yet the sound has depth, roundness and flexibility.
    A really lovely, traditional and concert-worthy instrument.

"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."
