This is Stephen's standard concert guitar. A lightly built, responsive instrument which is harmonically rich, has a wide tonal pallete and exceptional clarity. This is his original instrument that he has been developing since the beginning. They are built to be highly versatile, which makes them great for the player who has a wide ranging repertoire.
The Concert model comes with Gotoh tuners and is fully customisable.
Stephen has recently made some refinements to the soundboard design of the Concert guitars. This model was established before the Cadenza and sound wise remains very similar. But with the extra time Stephen is now dedicating to his Concert guitars you can expect to hear the difference. The Concert model also has a much longer French polishing process to a high gloss finish.
The Cadenza remains unchanged and offers a simplified aesthetic which enables Stephen to pass on a considerable reduction in price to customers.
However, if you are wanting a guitar with all those extra little beautiful details hand crafted, and would like complete creative control, then this is a delightful instrument to consider.
