Overview: The concert guitars of master guitar maker Joshia de Jonge combine northern European traditional tonal beauty with the quick response and laser-like projection of the most successful, innovative contemporary guitars. The magnificent concert guitar offered here incorporates a small discrete sound port with a magnetized adjustable port cover.

Both very musical and very powerful, this player friendly concert instrument has a highly appealing warm, creamy, clear, smooth sound and a wide palette of color and attack. Each note is like a polished jewel. Playability is excellent, offering one of the easiest actions and neck contours around. (Learn more about this classical guitar maker).
