Lorenzo Lippi with a young player at the 2018 Roma Expo

Lorenzo is a serious man, you know that the moment you meet with him.  I loved him immediately.  No nonsense, no BS, the man knows guitars.  He was very straightforward with me (my favorite), where it was immediately clear that we were going to work well together.

This guitar that we present to you is his personal Concert Model.  The elegant and tasteful purfling work is superb.  Clearly voiced, powerful, bold and direct, with lyrical qualities that many wish they had available and workmanship that is to be admired.  Truly classy in all regards.

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 Audio190917-Federica Canta-2019 Lorenzo Lippi #HN38336 Spruce EIRW – Federica Canta was warming up after 3 days of not playing.  It is a very long recording, which I just left running, as she really started warming up, after playing the Frignani.  Holy nylon strings batman…that’s all I got.  On the guitar, well this is an extraordinary guitar that I simply do no justice.  My recording is below.  Federica is awesome!

190607-2019 Lorenzo Lippi #HN38336 Spruce EIRW – a supremely powerful and clear instrument, one that’s a pleasure to play.  The baby rang like a piano harp on certain chords, along with clarity of notes and depth of tone.  A true pleasure.  I play some Bach, my own Samantha’s Lullaby, Sketch #6 and a new piece I’ve been working on getting into my hands.

My Solo Book of sheet music is available here if you’re interested.
