African blackwood body spr./ced. soundboard
These very powerful, unusually responsive spruce/cedar double top guitars have it all: rich beautiful sound, broad color palette, unusially large dynamic range, superb sustain, even balance up and down and across the strings, and exceptional playability. A concert guitar of impressive refinement, this guitar embodies a unique synthesis of composite double top design (as pioneered by the great contemporary German master, Gernot Wagner) and a modern variant of Hauser I's seven fan bracing system. Round creamy trebles, rich deep basses, outstanding projection, quick controlled very smooth response (this guitar is nearly impossible to overdrive) make this double top guitar an extremely impressive concert guitar.
Add to these primary musical attributes beautiful understated visual aesthetics, stunning craftsmanship (among the finest in the world) and master grade materials, and you have perhaps the finest value available in a world class modern concert guitar. With nearly three hundred classical guitars to their credit and over fifteen years experience, look to the Milburns as two of the most brilliant in a new generation of guitar makers of international stature.(Learn more).
