This is a excellent example of Bruno Boutin’s traditionaly built instruments highly influenced by the Daniel Friederich guitars…
It has a very beautiful singing voice, nicely opened up with great balance and separation…
The guitars top has nail marks and some scratches, mostly seen trough close ups… the balance of the guitar is in very good shape…
A must try for anyone on a budget looking for the Friederich sound and quality hand made guitar
Made in 2008
Red cedar top
Indian rosewood back & sides
Elevated Honduran mahogany neck
Madagascar ebony fingerboard
Irving Sloane tuning machines with ebony knobs
Hard shell case included
A great guitar for a player or collector who wants an instrument built in the direct tradition of Daniel Friederich, from whom Lesueur learned guitar making 45 years ago.
As Lesueur tells it, both he and Friederich knew each other as cabinet makers in Paris before either one started making guitars. Friederich began first and acquired skills and knowledge that put him at the forefront of world luthiers.
At the age of 39 Lesueur decided to follow his friend and became his apprentice and in 1978 he made his first concert instrument.
During his subsequent career he won all the national and international guitar making competitions and attracted the attention of many top virtuosos such as Toninho Ramos, Celco Machado, Mitsutoshi Tanaka and Alvaro Pieri.
Excellent value, tone & playability
