Roberto Ceretti's guitars

Post by bodhisattva » Thu Mar 07, 2019 11:18 pm

I've read a very interesting article entitled "Italy artisan crafts guitars for musicians in need". It's about the work and ideal of the Italian luthier Roberto Ceretti. The article says: "Offer Roberto Ceretti a fortune for one of his coveted hand-made guitars and he'll likely turn you down: the Italian craftsman may be in demand among collectors, but only plies his trade for top musicians in need."
The article also quotes Ceretti:
"Guitars aren't prostitutes to put in the window. They're instruments to be kept for a lifetime, to be played and lovingly cared for," Ceretti said.
"I only have musicians as clients. I don't make guitars for collectors or people who just want something fashionable to put on their wall," he added.
That is so lovely, but it seems extremely difficult to find any Ceretti's guitar for sale on the internet.
Has anyone in this forum possessed a Ceretti's guitar?

Nor have I heard of him, but I think I'd like him.
