This fantastic „Philharmonic“ model was built in 2015 as Yulong Guo’s highest grade concert guitar. It is a beautiful instrument with a unique rosette displaying great marquetry skills, and a special designed label. Its condition is excellent and only a few playing marks are visible on the waxed top. There is a little mark under the bridge that was caused by a slipping first string.
This spruce double top has a huge sound. The bracing pattern is very interesting: it is designed with struts pointing towards the bridge from all directions, similar to sun beam rays. This conception makes the top vibrate homogeneously and gives a striking reactivity to the sound. Moreover, the thin neck makes it very easy to play for the left hand. It’s all there: sustain, rich overtones and balance, making it an impressive double top concert guitar.
