This instrument sounds every bit as spectacular as it looks. Versatile and loud, with tight basses and strong trebles, and well-balanced throughout.
The narrow annular rings of the top match nicely with the beautiful grain of the back and sides. The binding, rosette and headstock veneer are made from the same piece of Ziricote as the back and are complemented with tasteful white and green purflings.
As one guitarist put it: 'the notes just seems to flow out effortlessly'. That, and the comfortable neck shape combined with the low action of this spare-no-expense instrument will make her a companion for life.
