Franz-Ulrich Albert and Antonius Mueller joined forces in 1984 to craft high-level acoustic instruments that sound excellent and are expertly put together. Made in Germany, these guitars are still making their initial impressions on this side of the Atlantic, even though these two builders have now parted ways! Too bad, as we'd certainly like to see more of them!

Old-world craftsmanship, master-grade materials, and true attention to detail went into building this piece. It's a very lightly built instrument of highly figured maple and German spruce with a unique mix of X bracing and classical-style fan braces. The instrument is finely purfled with mitered half herringbone strips and bound in rosewood. Concentric half-herringbone rings for the soundhole rosette, and the fingerboard is decorated with pearl and abalone dot inlays.

The guitar really shines when you start playing it -- it has a tremendous scope and clarity in all registers, great volume, and a wonderful bass response that carries through right up the neck. With a hi-def sonic character, this guitar would really appeal to a fingerstyle player who is looking for a full range tonal experience. It's an extremely well-balanced acoustic with beautiful clarity and volume, life, and an unbelievably open response.

15" wide cut-away body with German Spruce Top, figured maple back and sides, flush-heel cut away mahogany neck, ebony fingerboard, and gold Schaller tuners. Compact feeling round neck carve with 1-11/16" nut; 2-5/16" string spacing at the bridge.

With Original hardshell case.
