Description

When a luthier finds an excellent set of Brazilian Rosewood and treats it as lovingly as Laurent Brondel has here, the guitar born from that care and craftsmanship will stand apart, even from other Brazilian Rosewood guitars. The 2012 Brondel A2 we have here is just such an instrument. Make a list of everything you want out of a guitar, and this 000 will probably satisfy every item. There's sustain for days with that Brazilian Rosewood, and an incredibly complex, deep, warm tone from the body size and Adirondack Spruce top. There's the perfect setup for flatpicking, and the sensitivity for fingerstyle. There's an explosive responsiveness and strong, articulate tonal palette across all registers. There's sweet, balanced overtones in the low-end, and powerful projection. And finally, there's Brondel's very well-executed Sunburst Finish. Brondel's attention to detail is incedible: purfling lines are graceful and handmade, Gabon Ebony bridge is asymmetrically carved, back braces are capped with Brazilian Rosewood. At this price, there really aren't any other guitars which can compare. This guitar comes with an Ameritage hardshell case.

Just strumming a chord once on this guitar, I was hooked. That G chord held in the air for many long seconds, in which I just listened, and was amazed. Laurent Brondel: a very talented builder. The A2: a refreshing take on the 000 body.
 
Amazing tone and playability. And, it's gorgeous too. One of the nicest sunbursts I've seen.
