This remarkable copy of a Romantic  guitar was built in 1988 for Peter Segal who used it in many concerts and recitals. Played recently in the shop by a wonderful Philadelphia performer, this guitar came to life and captivated both the player and several listeners with its ability to provide a special, authentic voice to the music of Sor, Giuliani, Diabelli and other early 19th century composers.
