GB £.1900 (Reduced) Adalid/Hopf Membrane cedar 2015, Manchester, UK

Post by Adrian Allan » Mon Aug 20, 2018 5:17 pm

Type / luthier: Manuel Adalid/ Dieter Hopf Artista Membrane

- Year of construction: 2015
- Scale length (mm): 650
- Nut width (mm):52
- Top: Cedar
- Bracing (fan/lattice/other): Double top "membrane"
- Back / Sides: Pau Ferro
- Fingerboard / (bridge): Ebony
- Sound: Dark, boomy cedar guitar
- Condition: Excellent
- Price: £2,200 (Reduced to 1,900)
- Viewing / trial possible: Yes
- Location (nearest city): Manchester UK

Designed by German luthier Dieter Hopf and made in collaboration with Spanish maker Manuel Adalid, this is an innovative instrument that features a unique, "membrane" top - there is a large oval shaped section of the soundboard which encircles the bridge and is thinner than the rest of the surrounding top. This area is braced with a lightweight lattice system topped with carbon fiber. Indeed this area of the top acts as a separate, highly flexible membrane, increasing volume noticeably as a result.

The guitar is louder and heavier than a traditional model. It almost sounds like it has a built-in amp!

The reason I am selling is that my own playing style has gradually moved away from cedar and towards spruce.

The condition is excellent; almost as good as new. The only marks are a few tiny ones on the third photograph near the bridge and on the bridge - they are small imprints, not really scratches.

The original hard case is included.

Interesting instrument. The Pau Ferro looks fantastic.

In the other threads on this forum, I joined in the chorus of "please show us the guitar without added reverb"

So in the interests of complete honesty, here is a very very raw version of the guitar, filmed on an ipad.

So for once in the history of selling guitars, think along the lines of, "this is a basic recording, at close range, with zero reverb and a few flubbed notes", and then work upwards! The visuals are poor as I live streamed it as I had no space to save on the ipad.

I have had a few offers on the auction website, so it won't be around for much longer.

Hi Adrian

I'm a student of guitar and this would be a good match i think. Is it still available and could you ship to London?
