This guitar is based on one by René Lacôte, one of the most significant French guitar builders of the 19th century. This replica has been combined with modern elements, such as the modern headstock and the rosette. The fretboard is also wider than that of a romantic guitar, making the guitar easy to play. The top is made of the finest spruce, while the back and sides are crafted from beautifully figured maple. The guitar is refined with a shellac finish, giving it an elegant appearance. The tuners are also of high quality and ball-bearing, ensuring precise and smooth tuning. The guitar has a beautiful romantic sound, which is warm and resonant. It’s also perfectly suited for chamber music. Here are the advantages of this guitar summarized:
– Magnificent antique look
– Balanced sound
– Ideal for chamber music
