Daniele Marrabello is one of the most sought-after Italian luthiers. After his guitar-making studies at the Civica Scuola di Liuteria in Milan, he became Enrico Bottelli’s pupil and deepened his woodworking skills, aesthetical identity, and sound personality under the guidance of the esteemed maestro. Daniele Marrabello opened his personal workshop in Vimodrone, on the outskirts of Milan, in 2012.
This outstanding guitar numbered 153, is a richly decorated instrument that was built with an outstanding selection of woods. The aesthetic quality of this guitar shows that Daniele has pushed his handwork mastery to the highest level. Moreover, the combination of Indian rosewood back and sides and a feather-light hand-split master-grade Swiss spruce soundboard displays Daniele’s understanding of first-grade timbers. This guitar resembles the guitar of Hermann Hauser I due to its outstanding clarity in all registers, precise balance, and vast color palettes. Every note has a defined and “anchored” fundamental at its core, with very controlled and transparent overtones.
