Steve Rapson - Fleta Classical Guitar
"As a composer for solo guitar it is a rare moment when what I hear internally springs so perfectly from the instrument. Such is the case when I play my composition, Lament, on my new Fleta built by luthier, Oscar Azaret. Such beauty he has made, for the eye as well as the ear."
Steve's new guitar is in the Ignacio Fleta tradition.... lot's of clarity, sustain, fundamentals, and presence. Steve plays without nails.
Mark M. Davis - Romanillos Classical Guitar
"I’ve had my new guitar (the Romanillos model) for a couple of weeks now, and it just keeps getting better and better! I have not been able to put it down. It’s an inspiring instrument that calls out to be played. Its sound and response are really incredible.
The guitar sounds especially good on expressive, Spanish-style pieces, but also on any repertoire where you’d want depth and clarity combined with a wide palette of colors.
I am absolutely loving this guitar! I feel that it has given me a whole new insight into what playing guitar is all about. I can't thank you enough."

George Attisano - Kasha Classical Guitar
"I was immediately intrigued by the design of the bridge, which reflects the irregular bracing pattern; it’s an immediate visual cue that communicates innovation. The tone is balanced across the strings and up and down the fret board. The guitar is very responsive, allowing soft and loud passages to be heard clearly and with appropriate contrast. Playing the Kasha has opened up new paths of expression and has made it possible for me to further develop my technique. I find the guitar is adaptable to different repertoire styles: Bach, Scott Joplin, and Andrew York sound equally convincing."
