The immensely gifted young Italian luthier, Daniele Chiesa, makes his home near Granada, Spain. His guitars are very, very special indeed. While the sound of Chiesa's instruments is characteristically warm, sweet, round and clear (the Italian influence), Chiesa's powerful concert guitars also embody the alluring sonic earthiness so characteristic of the Granada School. The result: the Italian and Granada influences, and a great deal of individual talent here make for an exceptionally rewarding musical experience for player and listener alike.
Add to these qualities wonderful depth and balance of sound, a quick response, low easy action and a comfortable neck contour, and you have what we consider to be the finest value in an exceptional, world class, truly individually handcrafted concert guitar from Spain. (Learn more).
