2018 Michele della Giustina #384 Spruce Ziricote


Michele did not disappoint!  Superb woods, striking Ziricote, excellent machines, purfling and bindings exquisite, rosette sublime.  The sound is equally magnificent.  Italy has some of the finest luthiers and Michele must be listed among them.  I will write more in the coming days.

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

MP3 –  181207-2018 Michele della Giustina #384 Spruce Ziricote – this is a superbly balanced and wonderfully expressive instrument, capable of projecting, power and voice.  I am very pleased with Michele’s work and very happy to offer it to my clientele.
