Product Description

After Sylvain Balestrieri graduated in classical guitar, he moved to Paris and studied at the “Ecole Normale de Paris ” for two years. He worked in some of the most famous workshops in London, such as Andy’s Guitar and Graham Noden. In 2008, he finally founded his workshop in Grenoble (FR), where he dedicates himself to a unique concert model and the restoration of antique instruments. With a rate of about four guitars per year, Sylvain deliberately chose quality over quantity.

His approach to guitar construction follows the French tradition of guitar building and is inspired by French luthiers Robert Bouchet, Daniel Friederich, and Dominique Field. Dominique Field says of him, ” Sylvain Balestrieri’s craftsmanship is of the highest level, coupled with very tasteful artistry.” Sylvain’s work is characterized by his extraordinary patience and perfectionism. He focuses on an exceptional concert model and spends more than 200 working hours on each instrument.

This guitar is a highlight and comes directly from Sylvain’s Alpine workshop. The craftsmanship is amazing, and the sound is just as impressive. This 2021 model has velvety deep Basses with astounding smoothness. Bell-like trebles project crystal clear into the room and develop an inspiring series of overtones. In addition, the playing feel is exactly what you would expect from a premium classical guitar. Tone production is immediate, playing comfort for the left hand is at the highest level, and the tonal palette is almost limitless. In short, this instrument is a magnificent and impressive example of the famous French traditional guitar making.
