This double-top classical guitar from the luthier Dieter Hopf has been sold.
The art of double top classical guitar making of Dieter Hopf made affordable!
Dieter Hopf is a master luthier who is aiming at producing the best concert classical guitar for demanding concertists but as well he is one of the rare who has managed to create concert classical guitars for people who cannot afford to go bankrupt when buying a classical guitar. The Progresso double top is clearly what we would call a semi-concert classical guitar which offers the features of a concert classical guitar but not at the same price.
The first impression when playing this classical guitar is the pleasure and the feeling to play a top instrument with a large volume, lots of flexibility and singing trebles. The balance is great and the easiness is obvious.
A classical guitar at half the price of the big concert guitar which will give you full pleasure.
The Progresso n°101 2016 model is a spruce top double top based on the Portentosa design specially made for those who cannot afford the Evolution or the Grande Furioso Portentosa. As always in these cases, the classical guitars made always offer a fantastic value for money price ratio: same sound quality, same know-how, and same attention to details.
As one could expect, the spruce top brings some clarity to the general darker double-top voice. This 101 is opened and balanced.
