Description

Trust us when we say that no one builds quite like Bernard Lehmann--one look at this Master Model 2000, and the proof is in the pudding. And by pudding, we mean the gorgeous chip-carved trim around the Bearclaw Sitka Spruce top, the pierced rosette (paying homage to a lute's soundhole), floral inlaid bone markers across the fretboard, and of course, the ribbed and vaulted Ebony back. Designed to maximize bass response with the enlarged air cavity, the vaulted back tapers to normally-sized sides, so optimum comfort is maintained for the player. In order to get cavernous depths like this Master Model 2000 is capable of, you would ordinarily need a much larger Jumbo guitar, with its accompanying setbacks, but this instrument is able to seamlessly fuse the tonal response of an OM-size with an expansive low-end.

With the addition of an Ivoroid-bound soundport on the upper bout, all of that rich warmth is broadcasted straight to the player's ear, as your own personal monitor. We tried out tunes in Standard, DADGAD, Cadd9, and others, and each time we were very impressed by the responsiveness and clarity across all the registers--there's nothing Lehmann's Master Model 2000 can't handle.

Bernard's chops are top-notch, and this guitar really showcases that. The expressive tone and easy playability are winners for sure, but it's his aesthetics that seals the deal for me: there just aren't many builders out there with a sense of style like Bernard.
 
The curved and segmented back of this guitar gives it an almost Renaissance look. I love how evenly balanced the tone is. It responds much more like a good classical than most steel strings, but with the smaller neck and fingerboard of a steel string. This is a very versatile guitar that sounds good plucked or strummed.
