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 built to his highest standards.  The woods used are select from his choice inventory.  The Brazilian Rosewood is deep and chocolate, with beautiful striations, which is also CITES certified.  The sides are Spanish Cedar, thus the title of the guitar.  The top is his typical and highly desirable Italian Spruce.

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.

This is a magnificent concert instrument built in the traditional manner.  I have put the guitar in a Cibeles HSC as per the photos.

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 230607-2023 Lorenzo Lippi DN46802 Spanish Cedar Rio Rosewood – as per usual, the guitar left me speechless.  Lorenzo is a master of his craft, as evidenced by his teaching of the craft, renowned throughout Italy.
