The Premium models are unique instruments that are developed in cooperation with a selection of exceptional luthiers. These models are exclusively available at Siccas Guitars and are built with the finest Cites-certified Brazilian rosewood of premium quality. Due to its outstanding physical and tonal characteristics, this wood has been used in guitar building since the 19th century and is regarded as the most valuable and aesthetically appealing tonewood in guitar building.
Dietmar Heubner builds traditional guitars with modern sound aesthetics. His instruments impress with their sustain and exceptional sound volume. Due to their variety of timbres and the wide dynamic spectrum, they offer many possibilities for guitarists to express themselves through a unique sound. Dietmar started his career in the ’80s in Stuttgart as a cabinet maker, but soon followed his real passion, building classical guitars. Early on, he followed the Spanish guitar building tradition.
To craft this extraordinary instrument, Dietmar Heubner decided to refrain from using machines and to get as close as possible to the wood. Using hand planes and scraper blades, he shaped the top as well as the back and sides. This masterly feat of craftsmanship allowed him to control the thickness of the wood, to adjust spontaneously to its characteristics, and to take advantage of the possibilities and opportunities inherent in any craft. This approach is perfectly in line with Dietmar’s philosophy, emphasizing that traditional construction still offers unlimited possibilities for development in terms of sound aesthetics, projection, and everything else that makes the guitar such an exceptional instrument.
The result is a very vivid and delightful guitar. It exhibits impressive tonal volume, projection, and openness that is astounding for a guitar that just left the workshop. The trebles sound brilliant and warm at the same time. In addition, the slightly raised fingerboard provides for playing comfort in the higher registers. The list of objective qualities of this guitar is long, what we are most excited about is the subjectivity, emotion, and charm that this instrument emanates.
