The handle? how to say ... fantastic!
Ergonomics? Very nice, well balanced.
Access to acute smoothly.
Sounds: ca then there is magic! A guitar that resonates with his whole body ... bass very deep, very defined mids and pretty dull, highly crystalline treble and mix the three in perfect harmony.
Guitar very large bill.
A violin incommensurate guitar handmade by artisans for a great quality.
Still relatively unknown in France (which is certainly not a reference) these guitars are all ways small jewelry.
To put it in front of a high-end Martin, a super taylor in terms of quality.
Be careful though, with a real signature guitar sound of its own.
If I would do this choice?
Yes well I'm not ready to part with it actually ...
