The classical guitar Portentosa Grande Furioso is the top of Dieter Hopf guitars line. Compared to the Portentosa Evoluction, the Grande Furioso as a more traditional sound, but still huge.
These guitars feature the loudness of the lattice with the legendary tone quality of the Portentosa. The guitar is light and the sustain is great and enhanced with overtones which fill up all the space. The craftsmanship is exquisite. There is a warmness and clarity with a huge colour potential. His instruments are well balanced with excellent projection and refined tone colour, his workmanship is meticulous with attention to detail, playability and appearance.As all the Portentosa Grande Furioso this classical guitar offers:
- a huge sound full and creamy
- the feel and touch is very close to the one of traditional guitar (no arched back, light guitar)
- the tone is close to the Portentosa tone but with a little bit more of everything, more sustain, warm trebles and nice string separation.
Be careful, it is not because all the models of classical guitars from Dieter Hopf look the same, that they sound the same.
This lattice classical guitar is a dream: the bestselling Portentosa has been revisited with a lattice top. The sound remains typical of Dieter Hopf classical guitars but with more power and more definition. It has very fat trebles with dark basses. A very ‘romantic’ or ‘Spanish’ sound but with huge overtones and long sustain. The neck is perfect. It is one of the best guitars in the world. The playability is great; the neck is slightly thicker than one normal guitar and oiled which gives a nice feeling for the left hand.
The famous Portentosa has been made using the lattice format by Dieter Hopf. This new Portentosa called Grande Furioso represents the achievement in terms of lattice classical guitar making : power, musicality, balance and confort. If all the Portentosa models look the same, this Evolution is a true revolution in terms of luthery. A fantastic instrument!
