Description

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." We adore this Lehman model 2000, it is crafted from gorgeous Koa and Adirondack Spruce with wonderful adornments such as a fully carved rosette and top trim, intricate fingerboard inlay, slotted headstock, soundport, Ivory accents and of course a vaulted back. The voice is strong, airy and sweet. You can hear Bernie Lehman's early instruments influence and it makes this a superb fingerstyle guitar and it undoubtably an exquisite and artistic guitar.

This is an exciting guitar, it's fresh in that's it's retro. It employs a vaulted back like that of early instruments, which is a proven design to increase loudness and projection.
 
It's obvious to me that Bernie Lehmann has spent some time recreating early instruments like lutes. The design of this guitar is taken very much from renaissance instruments, with it's ribbed back, carved trim and ivory accents.
