Adriano Devoto is a young luthier from northern Italy who proves great craftsmanship and impressive prowess. He was a student of the legendary Italian luthier Enrico Bottelli and you can clearly see the influences of Bottelli’s art in the guitars created in Adriano’s workshop. Adriano draws inspiration from the traditional guitar building heritage, but also brings his own ideas of an ideal sound to the building process.
This guitar has qualities that are highly desirable in a quality classical guitar. The trebles are pristine with a glassy sound that projects with a full richness. Smooth, airy basses perfectly complement the singing trebles. When played, one senses a responsive, lightweight guitar that reacts quickly to the guitarist’s touch. The beautifully carved headstock is obviously inspired by Santos Hernandez and also from a tonal point of view, this elegant Italian guitar shows parallels to instruments made by Santos Hernandez . This brand new guitar has a certain airiness that can also be found in earlier Spanish master guitars.
