Description

From Lehmann: "The Model 1887 is designed for the modern fingerstylist. It is balanced to have bright trebles and clear, fundamental basses for better amplification and recording. The unique Lehmann �X� bracing is designed to increase the notoriously weak upper partials and give the guitar unparalleled carrying power. These are loud guitars!" We agree... the unique top bracing and X braced back make this a strong fingerstyle guitar with notes that leap off the soundboard. The upper partials Bernie refers to are very apparent and give it great color. The inlays on this 'Heart Of Africa' guitars are very cool and unique and make this a prize.

I really like Bernie Lehman's guitars, they have a lively and responsive feel and wonderful craftsmentship. This one is dressed in an African Motif and Bernie's calls it 'The Heart Of Africa', I call it superb.
 
The mids and highs are clear and true and the bass is nicely controlled. The African Rosewood has a terrific sound
