Overview: This very powerful, musically responsive double top guitar has a rich clear sound, broad color palette, unusually large dynamic range, excellent sustain, even balance up and down and across the strings, and exceptional playability.

A modern concert guitar of impressive refinement, this guitar embodies a unique synthesis of composite double top design (as pioneered by the great contemporary German master, Gernot Wagner) and a modern variant of Hauser I's seven fan bracing system. Quick round trebles, deep well defined basses, outstanding projection, very smooth response (this guitar is nearly impossible to overdrive) make this classical guitar an extremely impressive concert instrument.

Add to these primary musical attributes beautiful understated visual aesthetics, stunning craftsmanship (among the finest in the world) and master grade materials, and you have one of the finest values available in a world class modern concert guitar. With over three hundred classical guitars to their credit and over fifteen years experience, look to the Milburns as two of the most brilliant in a new generation of guitar makers of international stature.
