Pierre’s Observations:

Just arrived from the makers workbench.  I ordered this one because I’ve  liked them every time I play one. The PB50 is a handmade classical guitar for concert performances built by a maker at the peak of his powers, it delivers a romantic, haunting and enveloping Spanish sound. The trebles are clear and polished, the basses profound and firm. The guitar has excellent separation and balance. And, it’s comfortable set up makes it a pleasure to play.

 I rate as one of the great trinity of concert guitars together with the Manuel Adalid Cathedral and the Vilaplana NT before you have to invest over $35,000 in your guitar.
