Walter Verreydt built his first guitars in 1985. He was primarily a woodworking teacher and his love for music led him to build his first guitar and to become a luthier. Since 1988 Walter teaches classical guitar making at the “Centrum voor Muziekinstrumentenbouw” in Puurs (Belgium). He studied many guitars of famous luthiers like Ignacio Fleta, Robert Bouchet, Hernandez y Aguado and many more. His very good relationships with Daniel Friederich and José Romanillos helped him in the development of his own ideas. His guitars are handmade in the Spanish tradition and every instrument is the product of his personal growth and constant studies.
This beautiful new Lattice-cedar-top shows again the tremendous precision of Walter’s craftsmanship. The very fine marquetry as well as the perfect proportions of this instrument are outstanding. This guitar has a very warm and round tone, with wonderful singing trebles and a beautiful harmonic presence. The playability is marvellous and both right and left hand are pleased by the setup. It is a great master instrument and a fantastic concert guitar.
