We already said that Charalampos Koumridis is surely our rising star. The Koumridis lattice guitars – that you can listen in our website – just stayed a few days in the shop and have been preferred by players against the cream of the Australian lattice guitars. The least that we can say is that the lattice guitar from Charalampos is awesome. This No 165 is maybe one of the best guitar we received from Charalampos.
Charalampos Koumridis is a Greek luthier making amazing modern guitars which offer a wonderful musicality.
The luthier Charalampos Koumridis from Greece, will be definitly the discovery of the year end. Whereas we thought we knew all top European luthiers, we discovered an amazing luthier making wonderful traditional, double-top and lattice guitars. All his guitar models are amazing of musicality.
Here we have a lattice braced guitar inspired by the Greg Smallman guitars. Everything has been said on the Greg Smallman sound, this lattice model of Charalampos sounds to us even better. You will find singing warm trebles, very thick notes with a long sustain and as well deep basses more natural sounding than the one you can find on the Greg Smallman guitars. Charalampos has worked in th direction of a more natural sound. The result is amazing.
