Description: Acoustic Guitar - 2007 Gropius Concert Classical Guitar
German master guitar maker Achim Peter Gropius is one of Europe's most exciting younger makers of individually handmade classical guitars. His traditional signature sound is warm, dark, focused and round: quick powerful trebles, midrange and
bass with impressive density and depth
of sound. Perfectly balanced throughout their entire pitch and dynamic ranges, these lovely guitars respond with great finesse and beauty to both subtle and broad changes in attack and color. In
sum - beautifully proportioned, lovely to look at - Gropius' world class concert guitars exude an inspired and inspiring singing tone which is quite special - a tremendous value in a wonderful concert instrument.

Hiscox case from England.
