Master Nikolay Ignatenko Classical 6 String Guitar Reviews 5

I 've bought the guitar in the city of Krasnodar, Russia, at the music house of Guitars' Master Nikolay Ignatenko and paid 950$. I heard about thIs master before, because my friends had already bought two guitars there.

It is a concert guitar, which is perfect without electrical amplification in small and middle-sized concert halls. But the greatiest thing is that this guitar has exceptional timbre and sound brihgtness - the depth of sounds allows you to extract large spectrum of sound colors from the unit. The guitar was not manufactured in a serial production; it went under the master's hand, which had enclosed his large experience and search for the perfection of sounding, One may say that the master has breathed life into it - so, it has soul.

For 2 years I had been searching for the guitar, suitable for me. I am always finding quarrel in a sraw - so, I would have hardly bought this guitar, if I had found any lacks in it. Believe me or not - no lacks. Sorry!

The consrtuction is made according to Rameres (guitar master). I do not know about him at all, but probably you do. All I heard is that it' the world classical working standard form. Top sounding board is made of North-Caucasian abies - perfect and rare material used for classical guitars feature a soft and thick timbre. It is sonorous, durable, but light material. People say that North-Caucasian abies is much better, than cedarwood. The body is made od Madagascar rosewood, the neck - of mahogany.It is very good-looking. Smooth oval of fingerboard gives freedom and comfort to the left hand. And again - by my professional criteria, the timbre coloring of sounds is unique.

First: the guitar is perfect without electrical amplification in small and middle-sized concert halls; Second: it is hand-made - means unique; Third: beautiful; Fourth: fingerboard gives freedom and comfort to the left hand; Fifth: timbre coloring of sounds is unique; Sixth: if you see it you woul be jelous.
