2006 Luigi Locatto Spruce EIRW
Luigi Locatto! As in, yes sir! A light guitar, feather like in your lap, resonates like a beast against your chest. Simply exquisite! So much to say, so little having to be said.
Playability is superb. Workmanship to roll over and die for, all day. Expression, musicality, gentle touch to pushing it hard, yes! Nothing more required, the guitar is it!
This instrument remains in excellent playing condition showing only some very light wear and no damage or repair. The very thin finish shows some small finger marks to the top below the soundhole and a few slight fingernail dings overall, but no major wear. The back and sides are superb with nominal checking in the finish, as would be expected.
I have put this incredible guitar in a more than suitable case, a BAM Panther model case, received from my good friend, Carole Boutry of BAM USA in NJ. A deserving case for a more than deserving guitar. Please see the last 2 photos.
You may not find a finer example of the superb Italian school of luthierie similar to and in the hands of a Frignani, Bottelli, Lippi, Silvia Zanchi or masters of this particular ilk. These artists are a level above in a school of guitar making that is already exemplary. Enough said.
Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended including EQ manipulation, if possible. We record everything flat with just a touch of Reverb to relieve dryness. My goal is to record the guitar as realistically as is possible. I speak in the recordings, my thoughts about the guitar (and possibly other things?). My speaking also serves to give you my first impressions and to also give you a balance of the engineering (or lack thereof) versus the sound of the guitar. I simply do not have time to engineer much of anything. Thanks. Rich
Handcrafted instruments are photographed and listed individually, usually identified by a serial number, date and or some other combination.
Dust in the photographs are always an issue, especially when the humidifiers are on and running. We wipe down constantly, but artifact is an issue, showing up as white dots. It is unfortunate, but I do not like to touch the photos as I believe in absolute transparency. I want you to see what I am seeing with no secrets, ever. This is never about fooling anyone. I deal in happiness not deception. Please bear all of this in mind. I am the best in my business because of this simple philosophy. I trust you all appreciate this simple fact. Love to all. Happiness all the time! Richard
