Description

Paul Fischer is kown as the premier English luthier for the classical guitar. This Taut model is his finest offering and features a latticed fan bracing the elevates the projection and allows both the player and the audience to hear more of the guitar. The voice is simply astonishing, it is as if each string is amplified yet they are in perfect balance. The trebles soar and bass supports them in perfect harmony. It is very easy to understand why the list of professional players holding a Fischer is long and impressive. This example is the only guitar Paul Fischer has made to date with this combination of rare birdseye maple and cedar. The appointments complete it with elegance and grace.

It's clear that Paul's Fischer's bracing system employed on this Taut model really works. There are 12 fan braces bridged by latteral braces making for a lattice system that supports the entire top and allows it to be very efficient. This is an amazingly loud guitar, but what's more is the clarity and articulation. The notes fire across the room as if propelled and the each is round, warm and beautiful. The craftsmenship is worldclass and the appointments elegant and refined. I can't imagine a finer guitar. The Birdseye Maple here is stunning and perfectly paired with Cedar for tonal balance and beauty.
 
This is an outstanding guitar and the Birdseye Maple is truly magnificent.
