What an impressive volume for a traditionally built fan-braced guitar. The tone production feels similar to that of a grand piano, and each note develops with clarity, volume, and confidence. The voicing is very easy to define, and excellent tone separation combined with a reliable, well-balanced tone offers fantastic intelligibility in the polyphony. Finally, the future owner of this charming instrument will enjoy a top-notch left-hand comfort and refined chamber music playing experience thanks to the extra sound port on the side.
