Product Description

After having graduated in classical guitar performance, he traveled to Paris and studied two years at the “Ecole Normale de Paris”. Sylvain Balestrieri worked in some of the most iconic workshops of London such as Andy’s Guitar and Graham Noden and finally established his own workshop in Grenoble (FR) in 2008, where he focuses on a unique concert model and the restoration of antique instruments.
His approach to guitar building is inspired by the French guitar makers Robert Bouchet, Daniel Friederich, and Dominique Field and follows the French lutherie tradition.
Dominique Field says about him:
« Sylvain Balestrieri’s craftsmanship is one of the highest levels and it is coupled with very tasteful artistry. »
Sylvain’s work is defined by his incredible patience and perfectionism. He focusses on a unique concert model, spending more than 200 working hours on each instrument.

This gorgeous 2018 guitar is built tremendously fine and produces a rich voluminous sound. The thermo-treated spruce top gives an immediate response and bright singing charm to the trebles. Wide and coherent basses enhance the feeling of fullness and power of this guitar. It is a great traditional concert guitar, who’s volume definitely equals a double-top instrument.
