This Gerard Gilet concert classical guitar is constructed from solid cocobolo back and sides and a radially braced European spruce sound board. Radial bracing gives it more power but retains a more traditional tone than, say, lattice bracing. The arched back gives this guitar more forward projection.
This instrument has a smooth rather than overly percussive tone with sweet trebles and good, but not overpowering, basses. It is powerful with substantial volume but is not harshly loud.
This is a bargain price for a barely used concert guitar of this level from an internationally renowned Australian luthier.
