Mark Arnott Guitars

Post by rikroberts » Sat Dec 23, 2017 7:45 pm

Has anyone had any experience of guitars by this luthier? He's based in Worcester, UK.

I have just bought a wonderful Spruce top/ Flame Maple back and sides, lattice by him, and I love it - it suits my playing style. I have basically been on a search for a Concert Guitar to replace the Dieter Hopf 1984 Virtuoso I sold last May. I've gone through a Pablo Requena, Antonio Picado and a Stephen Hill since then, all good but not keepers in the shadow of my Hopf. It's only with this 4th guitar I've found something I'm at home with. It's so different from the Hopf, it will never invite comparison. It's a fine instrument and I'm looking forward to hearing it open up over the next year or so.
