Clearing out my workshop to purchase land and move. Offering up some very nice guitars. Here we have a Spruce top Bouchet braced classical guitar with Rosewood back and sides. This guitar may trick you into thinking it's a tight feeling bouchet style guitar but it's far from that! It's a very loud focused traditional tone. Loose for a spruce but still with great power. Excellent sustain and strong trebles all the way up the fretboard. Basses are powerful, bright but controlled. The french elegance is there with more power than expected. I've been playing this against some of my Hauser styles and am impressed with it's clarity that sometimes I forgot which I was playing. Ennio has studied with the great maker Enrico Bottelli who builds some of the best Hauser copies and Ennio himself studies closely the very builds of some of the great masters and now only can accurately build a similar guitar but also understand the maker's intents and is able to build some very convincing copies. This Bouchet braced guitar is certainly Ennio's own take and one I most admire. I plan on building a few Bouchet copies myself and feel that this is more to my liking. Perhaps a Bouchet after a few drinks. Loosened and powerful. 
Action on most of my guitars I build and own is usually all set to 4mm/3mm. This guitar is no exception and Ennio designs the bridge to have an excellent break angle and this saddle has much room to spare and could easily lower the action to 3mm on the bass side with a new saddle. 

I have other guitars for sale to check out. Basically selling to fund new land and a workshop to continue building so my fun-to-play guitar have to go.
