Zbigniew Gnatek is a renowned Australian luthier based in Sydney, Australia. His guitars are particularly interesting and highly sought after. He builds instruments at the highest level and perfectly combines the tradition of European guitar building with the extraordinary sound characteristics of Australian lattice construction. His commitment to a powerful yet sonorous and colorful tone and his impeccable craftsmanship has earned him immense international success, and his waiting list now extends over many years. His guitars are, therefore, rare gems.
This Gnatek is a work of art and a true masterpiece of luthiery. It displays aesthetic harmony and excellent taste. Many details are particularly noteworthy. The top is made of fine cedar and the back and sides of a exquisite Madagascar rosewood. Compared to other Australian guitars, this lattice-built instrument is relatively light, and its meticulous craftsmanship and impressive tone make it stand out – a great instrument that will suit any concert situation. The 640 mm scale length is an excellent opportunity for guitarists with, for example, smaller hands, looking for a guitar with lush sound volume and projection. This instrument offers superb trebles with rich and beautiful overtones, paired with direct and crisp basses.
