A joy to play and wonderful for Classical European and modern repertoire, while still being able to hold up to the raw and passionate style of Spanish music.
Appointments of shop-made natural wood wheat pattern purfling, signature rosette and premium Sloane tuning machings. Finished with a beautiful French-polish throughout.

"I will stand by my words that I think this is one of the best 'old-school' style guitars I have yet played, and I mean this in the best sense of the term, as this is the sound that I fell in love with, back when I was first listening to the LP recordings of Julian Bream (Romanillos period), Andres Segovia (Hauser period) and so many others!...
...And [Beverly and I] both noticed that way that this guitar transmits its sound directly into your body via vibrations, in contrast to modern guitars which are built heavier so that you HEAR them but don't FEEL them. For the player, this gives an amazingly personal contact with the music you are playing."
- Mark Davis, guitarist, mandolinist, conductor
