Regarding this guitar's elegant concert voice: There is not much one can or probably should attempt to write concerning such a refined spectrum of musical color, dynamics, and articulation except that this instrument's smooth deep sound is exceptional in every way: play, listen carefully, enjoy - exquisite.

Materials: Spruce soundboard, satinwood back and sides, mahogany neck with a perfectly executed V graft head to neck joint, ebony fingerboard. An intricate rosette and purfling design and a rosewood bridge with mother of pearl inlay further go to make this an immaculately crafted, visually stunning guitar.
