Enrico Bottelli was born in Milan, Italy in 1961. He made his first guitar-building experiences under the guidance of the Master luthier Carlo Raspagni in 1981 and started to build classical guitars as a professional luthier in 1988. His magnificent guitars are esteemed by professional musicians and collectors worldwide for their elegant, highly responsive musical attributes, refined visual beauty and precise craftsmanship.
This mesmerizing 2017 Hermann Hauser model is in almost perfect condition with barely no visible playing marks. It has a delightful Brazilian rosewood (CITES certified) and as expected from E. Bottelli, the craftmanship is perfect. The open, generous and sophisticated sound is striking. Braced in the style of Hermann Hauser I, the top is however made of Italian spruce from the famous Val di Fiemme, which is lighter than German spruce and therefore gives an exceptional freedom to the sound. Moreover, this guitar is very sensitive and offers beautiful and intense tone colours.
