de Jonge Classical 1993 (Consignment) SOLD

Here is a beautiful Brazilian rosewood classical from Sergei de Jonge. Sometimes you get certain pieces of Brazilian rosewood that I could just stair at for hours and this is one of them. The slightly mesmerizing grain lines complement the reddish chocolate coloring and really draw the eyes!! The tone matches the look with a full and lush complexity in the bass and midrange and a soft yet commanding treble presence. Hands down excellent craftsmanship yet again from Sergei de Jonge!
