Darren Hippner Classical Guitar #799 NeoLattice Redwood Ziricote


Gorgeous guitar originally modeled by Darren Hippner or Doc as I’ve always called him.  This design uses his Helion original bracing system using all Balsa woods.  How incredibly ingenious this guy is that he has modeled everyone historically, now coming up with his own, (I have to admit, his design makes a lot of sense).  The guitar, much like the other I had here recently (gone in a week, btw), with power and volume that is striking.  I find myself looking down at her, while playing, with a little bit of whoosh coming out of me as she impresses beyond her price point.  Way beyond.  Darren pulls no punches with his own design and builds.  She is very bold looking, equaling her sound and voice.

The Redwood is exquisite, rich-looking, dark and ruddy, while the Ziricote is monstrously beautiful with superb markings and figuring.  Little known fact is that Doc is also a high profile wood dealer, specializing in aged, beautifully marked Sound Board woods and body woods.   He only uses the best of the best, especially with his own builds.  This guitar is an example of such.

The play on her is gorgeous. Powerful, loud, musical and expressive with easy play.

She is brand new, but has developed a small but stable crack in the finish on either side of the soundboard by the neck connection.  I have to call her Pre-Owned as a result.  I will take photos to illustrate. Please look carefully as I made them as evident as possible.  She is a studio demo, in reality.  No other issues that are visible.



Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio – 170625-hippner-799-neo-redwood – very powerful, clear sounding, a touch darker, with coloration possible.  Great guitar, easy to play.
