This guitar was built by Pietro Gallinotti in his full maturity, at the age of 81. 

The great luthier who was lucky enough to live for another 13 years expresses in this instrument all the value of hishis experience and his passion for cabinetmaking.

It is in fact a guitar of great aesthetic character with a choice of top quality materials; Gallinotti is once again inspired by the Spanish building tradition of the first half of the 1900s. This beautiful instrument is characterized by a particularly happy sound rendering and a very valuable timbre balance.
