This is a truly unique instrument by a master luthier, Lorenzo Frignani. The carefully chosen cedar soundboard has excellent acoustic properties and displays appealing looks to the guitar. Moreover, combined with the Ziricote back and sides, this guitar is a dream to look at, not to forget the well-executed ornamentations and decorations. Acoustically this instrument number 252 is simply beautiful. Due to its F main resonance, the deep and haunting basses add a rich color to the overall voicing of the instrument. Meanwhile, the rich trebles have a very artistic quality and respond amazingly to the left-hand vibrato. This instrument is a true piece of art that will bring joy to its player.
