Swedish manufacturing, a powerful dreadnought, solid spruce top, mahogany back and sides (solid, I think); handle screwed wide and large enough, a beam ...
The handle is a practice quite difficult, because (very) wide, and quite large, a time of adaptation is necessary, and small hands will not be at the party ...
Access to acute facilitated by the handle screw (no heel);
Appropriate to the major gauges; the beast is impressive ... it does not even fit in a holster "standard"!
And the sound ...
Excellent! well balanced, warm, deep, full of harmonic in all directions ... Really impressive, especially for the game according brushed, where she is most comfortable.
May also be suitable for the game hairline, but I think it is not his goal, his destination is "to send large", what she does with great class.
I came across used; at first I did not know the brand (BJARTON) when I discovered it was associated with Hagstrom (which I knew the good reputation), I did not think twice! and I was not disappointed!
I have other acoustic guitars (including Martin, and Seagull) which I consider excellent, and I've owned many over the past 5 years (in no particular order, lag, fender, olympia, Simon & Patrick, Norman, taylor, guild, martin, seagull ... etc.) This is Bjarton my sense of high quality.
I do not know the odds of this type of instrument, in my case, I did not pay much ... The value for money is excellent, because I think that to have a guitar of this quality at present, it must pay the 1000 €; again, I think it should be experienced at any of vintage instruments. But I think they are quite difficult to find.
