Woods: Brazilian rosewood and western red cedar over cedar double top. Mahogany neck and lined sides. Detachable arm rest. Burl rosette with matching head stock and tie block inlay. Nut is a piano key, laid on its side, laminating ivory and ebony. French polish finish.

Miscellany: 650mm scale, 52mm nut width, nomex-Kevlar sandwiched into the double top, top of the Alessi line of tuners, 21st fret, 12 hole tie block, jumbo frets installed in 2009 by Yuris Zeltins of San Diego. Choice of humicase, Hiscox, or TKL style case. Sound port(s).

Condition: nearly mint. Only the slightest marks on the top. One scrape is noticeable without close inspection, below the fingerboard on the upper right bout. The French polish looks clean and original. No cosmetic or structural issues.

Comment: the solid top Matousek on this site has the same bright characteristics of this powerful double top. The guitarist is immediately aware they are playing a $10k guitar in the combination of bright, pulsing response but also clarity. The more often I play a guitar top with laminated sides I hear an added depth to the sound quality, increased sustain, a more rounded note, which I presume to be all about preventing the energy from escaping the top into the reinforced sides. Playing this guitar feels like getting out of a Buick and jumping into a Porsche. Jumbo frets were the choice of the former owner, who installed them for easier left hand action and speed. He is an international performer and has recorded a CD with this guitar.

Petr Matousek builds in the Czech Republic and is one of the top European makers of double top guitars. This is his top model, the “Concert Master.”
