This doubletop guitar was built by Otto Rauch in 2015. He named the guitar “Montagnana”, because its sound reminded Otto Rauch of the strong and dark character of the violoncelli made by Domenico Montagnana who was an Italian master luthier based in Venice (Italy) in the 18th century. Montagnana is regarded as one of the world’s finest violin and cello makers of his time. The very light cedar top makes the guitar strong and powerful. Back and sides are made of rosewood. An outstanding feature is the fretboard made of african rosewood. A contrast to the dark front of the head, is the veneered back – manufactured from Birdseye Maple. The guitar has a beautiful french-polish finish. Impressive volume and rich, deep basses as well as sparkling trebles characterizes the balanced sound of this fine guitar. The condition is very good with minimal playing or handling marks. The tuning machines are made by Alessi. A hardshell case is included.
