THANK YOU Robert Page!!!

The Giambattista G6 is the finest instrument I have ever played, and I've tried MANY. The workmanship is absolutely flawless. The finish is not thick like many guitars, but looks like it will last forever. None of that varnish build up along the sides of the fretboard/soundboard, etc. The guitar just SINGS. I've heard guitars that I thought *sing*, but this is a superstar diva! Volume, clarity, rich complex tone, projection, beautiful woods and finish. All of this at an outstanding price. I almost forgot to mention the wonderful fretwork. After looking inside with a mirror and flashlight, I'm just as impressed with the interior! Not a single glob of glue, and VERY clean workmanship. Thank you for your patience, and thank you for a wonderful guitar!

Your Friend,

The Audirac concertino arrived Friday afternoon in perfect shape. It is a wonderful instrument with the great resonant and balanced sound I was looking for, and beautiful to behold as well. My playing has already improved and I'll definitely be keeping it.

Thanks for your patience and help in choosing this guitar. When buying one "long distance," one must rely upon the seller for guidance and you really came through on this one.

Thanks again.

Dear Mr. Delarue:

I am sorry that I do not speak or write in French but I spoke with Bob Page at The Classical Guitar Store and he assured me that you would be able to read this letter. I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying one of your guitars that I recently obtained from Bob. Early in December I traded a very nice 1A Ignacio Rozas guitar for one you produced in 2003. Your instrument has a beautiful sound and is, without question, the best guitar that I have ever had the pleasure to play. I thought that you might like to know that your work is appreciated.

Sincerely, Rudolf Staroscik


By the way, the Giambattista G8 is a beautiful instrument. I can't put it down. I've barely touched my custom-made Brazilian Rosewood steel string guitar since I purchased the G8.

Bob and John,

It was a great joy picking out my replacement guitar last month! It was even more fun and a lot less traumatic the second time around. The string spacing on the Holtier is definitely right for my hands...and the tonal quality is also closer to the sound of my 'ideal' instrument.

I can't believe it took so many years to convince myself that I should own a quality instrument. Now that I have one I could not imagine not owning one. I can't get back all those years that I did not have a guitar like this truly fine instrument...all I can do is practice more...which is not a bad thing!

You were very patient with me and I appreciate all the help you gave me in helping me get just the right guitar in terms of tonal quality, physical dimensions and price. I wonder how anyone could possibly be comfortable buying a quality guitar any other way than from knowledgeable guitar consultants such as yourselves.
