Description

Jakob Lebisch suffuses poise, presence, and a sumptuously diverse tonal palette throughout the voice on this 2020 Double Top. Simply incredible. We’re flabbergasted by the velvetness of the trebles; there’s an alluring blooming quality, with cool overtones, that’s rarely seen. That top end mixes up flawlessly with a warm, articulate midrange—and the bass response fill out the voice with an easy warmth and roundness that hangs in the air. Lebisch’s double top construction adds power for the concert hall, but not at the cost of elegance and tonal range which many double top designs suffer from. On the tonewood front, Lebisch is working with classics, a combination of Indian Rosewood body with a doubled Italian Spruce top, Spanish Cedar neck, and a unique Ebony rosette inlaid with brass that further sets this guitar apart. The build weight is an incredible 2lbs 15oz! And gold Scheller tuners to round out the image, plus a gloss-finished 12-hole bridge.
Jakob Lebisch has built a lifetime concert instrument with this one, and we’re so excited to get it into your hands.

This is the first Double Top I’ve played from Jakob Lebisch, and I am so impressed. Jakob’s managed to coax an incredible amount of color and warmth out of this double Italian Spruce top, which is something I think a number of builders struggle with, here paired with the vigorous projection required of a modern concert guitar.
