2013 Paolo Coriani #193 Spruce Brazilian RW


She’s a beautiful guitar.  Sound and play are superb, fat and round.  Clearly voiced, excellent separation and she is pretty.  The man builds a great guitar by default.  She is easily setup, but still rather forceful in her sound.  Made to be driven, which I really like.

Nominal play wear on the top and back/sides, difficult to photograph.

A guitar with these specs, woods, etc would sell for $16.5K plus case from Paolo.  The guitar is priced accordingly.

Photos and measurements are up to date.

I will say that this guitar should be sold to clients in the Domestic USA.  I do not recommend shipping Internationally.  You are welcome to visit the gallery, by appointment, any time.



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 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

MP3 Audio – 220730-2013 Paolo Coriani 193 Spruce Brazilian RW – a great guitar, with bells in the trebles, beautiful balance, excellent expression with nuance, and power if you wish it.  Superb!
