Description: Acoustic Guitar - 2003 Otto Vowinkel/Picado Model 2a
Here is a unique classical guitar crafted in 2003. Model 2A Cedar top and indian rosewood back and sides. There is a 20TH FRET on the 1st string which is great for Barrios and other modern compositions. This guitar has come about in the collaborative effort between Otto Vowinkel of Amsterdam, Holland and Antonio Picado of Barcelona, Spain. It has a new rosette design of concentric rings and a unique headstock shape. It is physically light, very penetrating and easy to play. Volume is great with alot of sustain and warmth. Perhaps one of the best cedar-top choices for the serious student or beginning performer. This is a must for the college guitar major or serious amateur. Like many fine handcrafted classical guitars this one did crack during settlement period in the back but was expertly repaired. It is impossible to tell if you are not looking for it and I did add a photo of the back to view. Please appreciate this honesty as this is a wonderful instrument in appearance and sound. I purchased this from a major California classical guitar dealer with a great reputation two years ago. These went for $2800 new back in 2004-05. Will Ship to mainland USA only. The price of $1280 FIRM includes shipping, tracking & insurance.
