New Dream-guitar - "Modele Bertino"
Regrettably my beloved Favino had to be sold again last year as i could play it without hurting: the neck was just too braod for my hand. I had such heavy pain that i could not practise anymore, so i had to sell it with bleeding heart.
Therefore i decided to have this kind of a Gypsy-Guitar taylorsuited for my hands with a guitarmaker who is able to make them especially for my hands to avoid these problems.
As a Partneri found the well known dutch luthier Leo Eimers, who´se guitars have become famous by Stochelo Rosenberg and Wawau Adler and whos sound i like the best from all copies.
According to my own ideas and wishes put together from many of the old Favino-guitars the "Model Bertino" was created. And Leo did a great job as this guitar really sound s like an old Favino from the 1960ies.
Here are some images if that dream-come-true:
