You will simply be blown away by the beauty, artistry and sound that make up this MASTERWORK of luthery. Every piece of wood matches to perfection. Work started with an old perfectly book matched set of Brazilian rose from Cascavel (Rattle Snake) Brazil. Tap tone and grain are spectacular. Matching with Port Orford cedar was instinctive because the species possesses the best qualities of both Cedar and Spruce. The light beige color of the top melts in the fabulous binding and marquetry work. We used ebony for the bindings, under head pate, fingerboard, armrest, bridge and violin tie. Anyone who has had the chance of working with wood, will appreciate the amazing skill and labor required to sculpt these parts by hand. Yes, with knives and chisels. We only use power tools to cut the top, back and sides. The clarity of Lattice bracing is captivating and, when matched with the violin tie, it is A PERFECT SYSTEM. The 640mm radiused fingerboard is easy and natural to the left hand. Listen how every string shines with personality and how the melody shines in Romance. A rich web of harmonics and mid-ranges are created by the lattice. The response is OUTSTANDING and the beauty of the instrument is beyond words.
