Petr Matoušek is one of the best-known luthiers from the Czech Republic. His guitars are known to be of excellent artistry and sound. Especially the double-top models have gained an excellent reputation for being the best value for money. The same goes for this 2008 model. The guitar has a swift response with excellent volume and projection. The playability for both left and right hand is excellent, making it a very comfortable instrument. This instrument has been played a lot in the past ten years, and since it also was used for modern music, the first thin double-top layer next to the sound hole got worn out.
A thin cedar was added to the top to protect this section. Nevertheless, this top is perfectly stable, and the sound is unchanged. This guitar is an excellent opportunity to get a well-built, powerful, and comfortable double-top at a very attractive price.
Concert artists widely play Petr Matousek’s guitar throughout Europe. It is a concert guitar meant to be played regularly in concert settings. This brand-new guitar has a cedar double-top soundboard and Indian rosewood back and sides. Due to its double-top design, it possesses tremendous power to fulfill any concert situation. The 640 mm scale makes this easy-to-play guitar even more enjoyable, especially for those with smaller hands. This guitar’s great overall “feel” is achieved by an ideal level of tension in the guitar, making it easy to play on the right hand. Acoustically, this instrument is a dream for all guitar players. The balance between the warm trebles and the deep basses allows the musician to explore many kinds of sounds one can imagine.
