At this point, all I know is that Mikhail, or Misha to his friends, is building very few guitars of late. When he is building, he is truly crafting that which inspires him. From the woods used, to the design, this guitar is deep from the soul of this great Canadian Luthier. The Spruce and the Flamed Maple are as Old Stock as it gets in this business. Misha is very pleased with the work, the sound, and the play of this instrument. She is superb, with a beautiful voice, musical immediately, expressive at the slightest touch. This is an impressive guitar.
When she came, I was blown away. What a pleasure. With a silky, sublime voice, she resonates and fills the room with music immediately. She already possesses an old world voice and she’s a baby still. This is an amazing classical guitar by one of Canada’s greatest luthiers.
Listening with high quality headphones or audio equipment is highly recommended
