Because we are already listing in our showroom huge double tops from famous makers, we have been very happy to discover the luthier Johannes Kitselis who is making wonderful double tops. Johannes is based in Sweden and his guitars are loud, balanced with a very traditional voice. The craftsmanship is superb. I will advise you to carefully listen to Philippe’s video presentation, you won’t regret it.
What is really surprising when playing the guitar is the big voice with dark basses and thick trebles. You really cannot tell that the guitar is a double top, the sound is very traditional with a great balance between darkness and brightness. The sustain is long and very homogenous. Last but not least, the craftmanship is awesome with nice inlays and a wonderful rosette.
The quality of the lutherie is amazing and the sound impressive. The setting is perfect. Here is some information on the guitar :
- Doubletop using Nomex and Canadian Cedar (inner and outer layer)
- Back and sides are in Madagascar rosewood with 3 pieces ‘Romanillos style’
- string length: 65 cm with an elevated fingerboard
- French shellac
- 12-hole-tie block
