2021 Mario Grimaldi #287 Hauser Spruce EIRW


Renowned Italian Luthier Mario Grimaldi graces my gallery with an extraordinary classical guitar.
Bright and colorful, powerful and evocative, with warmth, clarity, a singing voice to be envied.  Mario Grimaldi is simply top of his class in all regards.  He simply builds an incredibly musical guitar.  The woods, machines, workmanship, purflings, all exceptional.  Highly mindful of a Hauser from the late 1930’s, I am adrift with a loss of words, but happiness to have such an exceptional guitar in my gallery.  Lorenzo Lippi, Enrico Bottelli, Lorenzo Frignani and now Mario Grimaldi, never mind Mazza, Maggi, Zanchi, et al.  I am truly blessed to be trusted with these fine luthiers and guitars.  More so that I can offer you the finest work from Italy.
The guitar has no need for CITES certification.  Domestic Sales are encouraged.  Shipping this guitar is not recommended but we will do it to the best of our ability.


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
