Iată o altă minune marca Alexandru Marian. Mă bucur că a ajuns în mîinile unui muzician extraordinar. Felicitări, Alex!
This is a special guitar which I made for myself. It happened that last year the number of builds caught up with my age – 34.
The (fan-braced) soundboard is the best I have handled so far, rivaling a double top. According to the seller it came from a reclaimed dead tree from the Vancouver area.
-back, sides, headplate and rosette of highly figured Honduras mahogany, the famous „the tree” cut in 1965.
-neck and bridge of 60 yo Brazilian rosewood
-fingerboard and back strip of bois-de-rose Madagascar rosewood, Indian rw binding.
Recently the guitar passed to an incredible guitarist I met, Cristian Gramesc from Salzburg.
Soundclips: pieces by Tedesco, Regondi and Brouwer, Savarez strings.
