Description

This Tacchi Coclea Thucia is the sort of instrument that inspired the concept behind Dream Guitars. It is an instrument that stands far above the many instruments in the world and offers something very unique and special. Tacchi developed the 3 piece top combining Cedar outer boards with Alpine Spruce in the center after hearing a Torres model with softer spruce surrounding stiffer spruce. This design makes for trebles that 'ring like a bell' says Tacchi and we can confirm that. Rarely have we heard such clear and present treble strings on a nylon guitar. The purity of note is outstanding. Rodgers tuners and an Accord Case compliment this worldclass Tacchi guitar.

I love to see fresh ideas in guitar making. Many builders manipulate the stiffness of the outer edges of the top in comparison with the center. But combing Cedar and Spruce boards is an ingenious way to create an active top. The result is very articulate, bell-like, trebles that are sure to satisfy any player. These are some of the most expressive and poignant treble strings I've ever heard. If you are after a truly special instrument, look no further.
 
This is a unique guitar with its three piece top. The sound is warm, yet strong and clear with lots of extra "punch." I like the feel of the raised fingerboard as well. This is inspiring...
