Matergrade guitar built by the master maker Alberto Pantoja. Alberto is an autodidact of undoubted qualities building instruments, although he also learnt things watching other great masters work and learnt all about the different woods used for the construction of an instrument. In 2013 he stopped building guitars – this is one of the last guitars he made! Now his son and grandson follow the family passion and tradition.
Alberto Pantoja has been praised by great masters for his guitars. His guitars were entirely handbuilt and his production was limited to around 12 – 15 guitars a year.
The selection of woods used for this instrument is: alpine spruce of exceptional sound and high quality grain and Spanish cypress of stunning beauty and features for the body (sides and back). The decorations and inlay works on this guitar are truly stunning and unique.
Thanks to the perfect selection of woods Alberto Pantoja used on this instrument, its sound is extraordinary, offering exquisite power and depth on the bass strings, together with crystalline and clean trebles, as well as enviable balance and projection.
The guitar offers perfect comfort on both of the guitarist’s hands.
The pulsation of this guitar is of medium tension with the strings at perfect height for performance. It has a 648 mm scale length and the nut width is 52 mm.
The guitar is in an excellent condition, completely original.
