We highly recommend visiting the Laurent Brondel website to learn about the luthier, here is some additional background regarding the instruments.
“I build guitars in my small shop in rural Maine. The building process is done one instrument at a time.
The matching of tonewoods and choice of decoration are highly integrated on every instrument. I make my own rosettes, marquetry and purflings lines, thus each guitar is unique.
My purpose for every instrument is to realise its potential as much as my possibilities allow. I strive for a guitar with a rich sound, yet with great clarity and projection, responding with a wide dynamic range and easy to play and hold.
Aesthetically I shy away from anything that detracts from the beauty of wood and the elegant proportions of the guitar. I aim to build a tasteful instrument of outstanding tone and classic appearance.”
“The shape of the body, thus the volume of air available for sound production, will determine the basic tone of the guitar. The thickness of the plates, along with the layout, dimensions and individual carving of the supporting braces will refine that basic tone to a great extent and give it life. Further refinements are brought out by scale length and neck dimension. After those decisions are made the choice of tonewoods will bring the instrument closer to an ideal.”
This is a beautiful exotic and uncommon guitar. From its gorgeous tone woods to its unusual adjustable neck, every aspect of this instrument is of the highest quality.
If you yearn for something truly special, this may be the guitar for you!
Original hard-shell case included.

important to someone else. For example, you may say, "I don't care what it looks like as long as it plays or sounds well."

If you ask they will be answered. They are free and there's no limit. Additional photos can also be made available.
