Dear Bob and Staff,
I've been playing my new Giambattista 60th anniversary model for more than a month now, and it sounds better every day. Not only does it have the great clarity and seperation one expects from a spruce soundboard; the tone has a mellowness usually associated with cedar tops. Baroque and Spanish repertoire sound equally great on this beautifully crafted instrument.
Thank you for all your advice and patience in helping me choose this fine example of the luthiers art. Referrals are forthcoming.
