GOING ONCE… GOING TWICE…
U.S.-based luthier Augustino Lo Prinzi has built thousands of stringed instruments, yet his first passion remains the classical guitar. Understanding that every aspect of the guitar will affect the sound, Lo Prinzi builds his guitars following old world traditions while still finding his unique voice by altering scale lengths and bracing patterns for different sized guitars. This particular guitar comes from a limited edition called “Pinnacle”. It’s a very traditional guitar with a clear sound and outstanding projection. For this run of instruments, the guitars are meticulously handcrafted using the highest quality materials available; the rosette is custom made with burl elm trimmed with green herringbone, and the bridge tie block is also trimmed in green herringbone. The head stock is elegantly cut to precision into a Moorish-inspired shape. The tone is very rounded, well balanced, and has great volume without being boomy.
