This is one of the most beautiful guitars we have played in years. From the hands of the exceptional luthier Manuel Adalid, this remarkable guitar is stunning to look at and even more beautiful to play and to hear. In addition to great power, projection and sustain, it has a captivating sweetness and a complexity of tone that draw you in as a player. The notes have an expansiveness; they swell like the notes of a church organ. Extremely well-balanced with a beautiful full tonal palette in all registers, rich and dark but with clarity and separation, this is one of those rare guitars that has it all.
