Andrea Tacchi was born in Florence (Italy) in 1956 at the time the city was flourishing with artisan’s workshops and artists’ studios. This very stimulating environment and meeting the South American guitar maker Ricardo Brané drove him to become a luthier. In close contact to Robert Bouchet and Daniel Friederich during the 80s, he developed his craftmanship and his artistic taste. Later on, he kept learning from other important guitar makers such as Ignacio Fleta, José Romanillos and Robert Ruck.
This Coclea model is Andrea Tacchi’s most modern type of guitar, built to be very responsive and powerful with a broad sound-colour range. This particular guitar was played professionally for the past 20 years and is therefore fully open with outstanding dynamic possibilities and a very rich and mature tone.
It is in very good condition with only a few playing marks on the top, and minimal little scratches on the back and sides. The soundboard was chosen by Andrea for its outstanding acoustic qualities despite the little crack it had under the bridge. Andrea therefore repaired this little crack before building the guitar, and it is part of the instrument since its construction. The first-class Rodgers tuners round off the overall picture of this beautiful and high-quality guitar.
