Tamara Stahl is a young and very talented luthier who completed her apprenticeship as a luthier at the instrument making school in Mittenwald. Her personal model is a classical guitar, which was created through experience and guidance together with various guitar builders and the study of numerous instruments. The construction of the top is a 7 fan bracing with a continuous arching which gives the thinly crafted soundboard the necessary stiffness and is also aesthetically in harmony with the raised fingerboard, which facilitates playing in the high registers.
When inspecting the instrument you immediately notice that the craftsmanship is on an astonishingly high level. Small details of beautiful marquetry give the guitar a sober and highly elegant appearance. One can just drown in the gorgeous details that the luthier carefully has balanced into a charming wholeness. The warm and round sound of the cedar makes the instrument sound pleasantly powerful, full of harmonics and overtones. It is a real joy to play this guitar made by Tamara Stahl. This instrument has deep, firm basses without being forceful or heavy, and creamy smooth trebles with a lot of sustain. Also, the balance between basses and trebles is remarkable. This cedar top is highly responsive with enough power for all kinds of concert situations, quite vigorous without being overpowering. Considering all aspects of this instrument it is a true bargain for the player who looks not only for the impeccable sound, but also the pure beauty of exquisite craftsmanship, or in this case craftswomanship.
The guitar comes fitted with machine heads made by Gotoh and a Hiscox Pro II GCL-L hard case.
