Jost von Huene was born in 1979 and is part of the new German guitar makers generation. Always interested in guitar making, he did an apprenticeship in Wolfgang Amann’s workshop before starting further studies at the college for instrument making of Markneukirchen in 2003. After having obtained his master degree in 2007, he opened his workshop in Dresden (Germany) in 2007. Since 2012, he is teaching in Markneukirchen the art of the lutherie.
What a beautiful classical guitar! This concert model built in 2016 is featuring a myriad of beautiful construction details: the beautifully coloured spruce top giving an aged look to the instrument, the fine reddish finish on the neck reminding of the great Spanish masters of the beginning of the twentieth century, the delicate purflings rosette in the tradition of Torres and Arias, and eventually the delicate rounded heel linking the neck to the body with style and refinement. Sound wise, this guitar is stable and reliable with a wide sound and a smooth touch on the fingerboard. The top bracing consists in light fan bracing transversely supported by additional struts. This ingenious fans and lattice design offers power and projection as well as sustain and colours. To sum up, it is great guitar uniting past and modern aspects of sound and construction, for a breath-taking result. The tuners are made by Schaller. A hard-shell case is included.
