classical Guitar SÖBESTH ROMANTIC REF: S8 N51

Scale length of 654mm. 20th fret.

It's a prototype, completed alongside its twin (S7 N50) at the end of June 2022.

For your information: SÖBESTH is a kind of acronym; 'Söb' for Sober, 'Esth' for aesthetic. ROMANTIC for the attempt to aesthetically parallel with 18th-century romantic guitars.

The deceptively simple appearance of this instrument hides a strong intention to achieve a very high-performance result. "It looks like soda but it's Champagne" 😊
