Description

Here we have a true work of art from Bernie Lehmann. This Lehmann Model 2000 Millenium is crafted from Ebony and Sitka in a ribbed, vaulted body style. If that's not enough it is adorned with a carved rosette and top trim, intricate fingerboard inlay, slotted headstock, soundport and real Ivory accents (from recycled Piano Keys). The voice is strong, airy and sweet. You can hear Bernie Lehmann's early experience with early instruments in this guitar. It breathes with every note, the articulation and clarity are other worldly. This is something different and something wonderful!

From the Lehmann Website: "Model 2000 is my latest concept in fine guitars for the fingerstylist. It incorporates a ribbed, vaulted back that not only looks stunning, but affects the tone in several positive ways. The volume is increased by focusing the sound towards the soundhole. This in turn lends an amazing clarity of tone, which is ideal for recording and amplification. Thirdly, the projection and carrying power of this instrument are remarkably enhanced by the unique design of the back. The highly arched design of the back makes the guitar very comfortable to hold because the sides are narrowest at the lower bout, right where the player's arm rests. The guitar feels like a thin body instrument, but sacrifices nothing in interior volume. The unique structure of the back provides surprising strength without any bracing being necessary."

I have played several Lehmann Model 2000 guitars and I have to tell you they are amazing and very unique. The vaulted body really effects the articulation and project in positive ways. This guitar is very loud, even with a soft touch. Being a fan of guitar history I love the appointments, from the carving to the Ivory inlays, this is a seriously beautiful guitar. This is a fine guitar for any collector or player seeking a sublime voice and artistic beauty.
 
I like the way this guitar responded much like a good classical guitar does. The overall balance is really nice and friendly to the ear. A great guitar for fingerstylists. It's also unique with its Renaissance like styling.
