Elegant, full tone in every register, great responsiveness and playability, the features of the “Modell Espressivo” include:
After years of consultation with performers, teachers and students to determine the optimal modern guitar for study and concerts, we arrived at the Modell Espressivo. In this model we achieved what these players sought; projection, balanced and transparent sound quality and timbre, good sustain, easy response and playability.
The Modell Espressivo was described in Gitarre Aktuell as having the greatest projection and sustain of any guitar the authors had measured, which they attributed to the instrument’s innovative lattice bracing.

The Modell Espressivo is inspired by the cello, which one can see in the solid wood arched back and the elevated fretboard.
The top is made of cedar or spruce. The back and sides are Indian rosewood, although flamed maple and cypress are also available, as are more tonewoods upon request.
