Bernhard Kresse is a very respected German master luthier based in Cologne. He is one of the most sought-after guitar makers worldwide, especially when it comes to replicas of 19th-century guitars. In the course of his career, he restored an impressive number of historical guitars and gained extensive knowledge about these instruments. Many of his guitars have been recorded by international musicians over the last decades.

This guitar built in 2020 is truly fascinating. The concert model of his own design has an elaborate cedar lattice performance on a spruce top. This rather modern element is counterbalanced by a three-piece maple back, which is very reminiscent of the way Spanish guitar makers used this fine wood in the 19th century. In addition, the raised fingerboard is made in the Viennese style, suspended above the soundboard, and equipped with an internal mechanism that allows the height of the strings to be adjusted with a simple key. Finally, the headstock is adorned with superb Rodgers machine heads, which contrast with the dark, figured Ziricote head veneer.

Our fascination for this guitar also applies to its sound. The very clear and easy to modulate tone has an elegant charm, with a notorious power and projection. The impressing ease of playing and the pure transparency of the tone in the trebles make this guitar a highly mesmerizing instrument. In summary, it is a true gem from one of the most experienced luthiers in Germany.
