The Artist Echoes model is quite exceptional, offering a double top guitar in a very affordable price category.
This model is built in a workshop supervised by Yulong Guo, employing between three and five experienced Chinese luthiers. Most of these luthiers are trained by Yulong Guo and have been working with him for many years. This guitar is made with a sober and precise design, rather modern and very recognizable.
It is a powerful and warm sounding instrument. A soft and colourful tone is obtained very easily and without effort. The ease of playing for the left hand is also noticeable, allowing the guitarist to play freely and to progress quickly.
The result is a beautifully crafted guitar whose convincing sound and ease of playing place it among the best guitars in this price range.
Yulong Guo has been building guitars since 1983 and has gained a solid world wide reputation in recent years for his high-quality double top guitars.
He is probably the most renowned Chinese guitar maker in and outside of China.
In 2018 he also introduced a traditionally-built guitar, the “Granada” model, which won 2nd prize at the 2018 “Antonio Marin Montero” Guitar Building Competition in Granada, Spain.
