Enrico Bottelli Classical Guitar 2007 #217 Spruce CSA


Another of Enrico’s classical guitars just arrived.  I will write more when I sit with her.  Very pretty.  The Spruce, the CSA, the Rodgers all compliment a guitar worthy of the Bottelli name.  I am entering discussions with him to bring his guitars to my gallery.   Musicality with Expression.  Ease of play with beautiful voicing and separation of voices.  Internal inspection reveals his signature, numbering of #217 and the date, 2007 on the inside of the soundboard.

This guitar has a bit more play time on her than the previous 2007 listed last month.  She is in very good condition with simple and honest playing wear, nothing of any consequence, after a thorough inspection by me personally.  There is nothing major on the top, a tick here and there, while there are some marks on the neck in and around the 3rd to 5th frets.  The CSA Rosewood is in very good condition, maybe a touch of wear on the back.

She also has all of Enrico’s upgrades, making this one of his more expensive instruments, including the Rodgers machines, the large rosette with custom woods and design, and of course, the CSA Rosewood along with the superior Swiss Spruce.  Her expression and play make her a very desirable instrument.  I could play this guitar endlessly.

Enrico has a 2-3+ year waiting list.   This guitar is immediately available via my gallery.

Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended

MP3 Audio – 170106-bottelli-217 – I was sort of stunned into silence in the middle.  Unbelievably responsive and sensitive instrument.  I’m going to record more with her, because I can  LOL – some of Valerie’s Air and Sam’s Lullaby in this recording.


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