Fernando Mazza is a successful guitar maker born in Argentina. After a career as a guitarist, he dedicated himself to classical guitar making and opened his workshop in Arezzo, Italy. Fernando Mazza’s guitars are easily recognized by their meticulous construction and beautiful rosette, reminiscent of the arches of the famous Palazzo Ducale in Venice. He builds guitars in the Australian lattice tradition, combining extremely stiff laminated backs and sides with an highly responsive lattice top. In addition, Fernando Mazza also builds a Nomex double top model with lattice bracing that offers even more projection and spontaneity.
Fernando built this double-top model in 2017 with a cedar top, lattice bracing and Ziricote back and sides. It also features many other modern elements, such as a raised fingerboard, an additional sound port on the side with a specially designed cover, and an armrest. The result is a spacious sound with exceptional power and excellent projection. The easy playability and balanced, rounded tone also give the player extra confidence in all playing situations. The interesting thing about this guitar is that the player retains fine control over dynamics and timbre, which allows for great expressiveness. This characteristic gives this isntrument a natural charisma and makes evident why exceptional players like Andrea Caballero and Valeria Galimova, among many other guitarists, play instruments made by Fernando Mazza.
