Achim-Peter GROPIUS

Reutlingen, Germany, 2001
Red Cedar Soundboard, Brazilian Back and Sides
Ebony fretboard with 655 string length
$ 5950 SOLD

A well cared for, first class instrument from one of Germany's most famous luthiers. 

Two things strike you right away when you try this guitar: its lightness and its explosive volume. Despite its slightly longer-than-normal string length, it is easy to play and completely cooperative in producing every gradation of dynamic range.

The French polish shows a little wear on the soundboard. The back and sides are clean and unscathed.

As far as sound is concerned, the basses roar and the trebles are pleasantly clear and bright.
