Lorenzo Lippi with a young player at the 2018 Roma Expo

The long wait for the arrival of the first of many Italian Luthiers that I met in Rome is over, as Lorenzo Lippi is the 2nd to arrive and it is spectacular.  This is one of his Studio models, less expensive, yet, bringing out why the true Italian luthiers are among the best in the world.  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.

Media

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 Audio – 201118-2020 Lorenzo Lippi Studio HG38675 Spruce Maple  – great guitar, Spruce with Maple that has more punch than you would expect.  Excellent voice, with separation and expression.

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