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.
What an incredibly well-preserved instrument. Ever since it was finished in 1994, this guitar received an extreme care and is still in absolutely perfect condition after 25 years of musical activity. This Coclea model is an instrument designed for great concert performances, displaying a particularly powerful and colourful tone. Such a responsiveness and smooth playability are much appreciated qualities, and the stunning sustain makes it a fully polyvalent instrument. Eventually, one has to point out the delicate and seductive timbre of the first string of this harmonically complex and rich guitar.
