Model Antico Grande II
This guitar model was first made for the request of virtuoso guitarist Simon Schwarzenberger. The rosette is similar to the one on my Moderno Grande guitars, but the abalone inlay is replaced with flamed Honduras cedar or flamed koa. Other small decorations are also made to match in color and grain with the rosette. On these pictures you can see a short scale guitar with ultra responsive Caucasian Spruce double-top soundboard. The shorter string length is not a problem with this construction, because the double top and bracing are designed to make this model just as loud and dynamic as a standard 650mm scale model.
