Since we had the last guitar from Alexander in 2021, Alexander Pashentsev made a lot of experiments testing many paramêters. Here is his latest new double-top model No 242. The top is made with balsa inside, the bracing has been refined to take into account a lighter top and a new soundport has been added. The craftsmanship is topnotch and most importantly, the sound is bigger, and thicker with long sustain and a nice warm traditional tone. Listen to the video review from Philippe and as well the video comparison against a Manuel Contreras 1a just to have an idea about how this DT compares with a very good traditional guitar.
It is well known that there are in Russia some huge guitar players and incredible luthiers as well. High quality at a great price!
Alexander is born in 1974 and has a degree in science – chemistry – and has played guitar with a great teacher Sergei Bizyaev – Alexander is an amazing player. He started to make classical guitars in 2001 and in 2012 he spent some time in Sevilla where he learned the Spanish lutherie.
This is the number 202 and the guitar is a double-top using only wood to keep as much as possible a woody sound.
Alexander uses cedar for the outside layer and cedar for the inside layer which is quite unusual. As a result, the guitar offers huge overtones and crystal-clear trebles.
We have been surprised by the sound quality of Alexander guitar which is very close to traditional guitar but with additional power, a great dynamic range and sustain.
The guitar is offering :
- 65 cm string length
- 12-hole-tie block
- extra C note
- Ebony fretboard
- Double top: Canadian Red cedar/balsa/ spruce
- Headplate: cocobolo
