Fabrizio Sapienza is an Italian luthier from Aquila Italy. Trained in the classical luthier school, Fabrizio makes Italian classical style guitars in the Italian ladder and H braced patterns.
Sound and Playability:
Sweet and delicate tone with the tone balanced between bass, mid and treble. The action is very good and it isn’t hard to fret. The guitar feels beautiful in hand.
Unique ORIGINAL features:
1. Beautiful olive wood decorations, with romantic guitar strap button in Olive wood, finger rest plate in Olive wood, and Olive wood inlay at the bottom of the top and side of the guitar.
2. Beautiful closed Panormo shaped headstock with ebony friction tuning pegs…. Maple veneer… incredibly beautiful
Condition described in detail:
The guitar is COMPLETELY handmade and is in very good condition. There are a few scuffs from finger strumming and there are three scratches on the left lower top of the guitar… these are not cracks! (see photos) They are in the finish and were simply scratches from the shipping company when the guitar was being originally wrapped. The reason for it is because it is french polished therefore even a small fingernail can scratch the finish. Guitar plays like a dream and sounds good. My only reason for selling is that I focus on Lute and Baroque double stringed guitar now. As is. No returns so ask any possible question you have.
