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 concert guitar offered here incorporates a small discrete sound port with a magnetized adjustable port cover.

Both very musical and very powerful, these player friendly concert instruments have 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).

True to what is written above this particular offering has a magnificent musical sound and stunningly beautiful physical appearance; it is exceptionally powerful, very resonant, quick to respond, and has an unusually wide dynamic range and palette of color and attack. It is also very even and well balanced both up and down and across the strings, and has a particularly comfortable fingerboard, string action, and neck contour. In sum, this is a rare, very note worthy concert guitar.
