is the instrument that carry all my sleepless nigths. On this
model I can work more freely creative than the traditional
models. Inspired by guitars built by australian luthier Greg Smallman
for guitarist John Williams, but with certain liberties and ideas
for my own construction: Use of different materials, different kind of neck, etc.
started building this kind of guitars on 1997, and I will always
remember a chat, about this kind of guitars, I had with my teacher
and friend Rodolfo Cucculelli.
Cucu" (Cucculelli´s nick name) wasn´t convinced
by the idea that a novel and inexperienced luthier move a side
from the sure road for achieve good instruments: if you build
reiterative a traditional design guitar and improve it
by increasing the numbers of instruments built.
vision (undoubtely correct and suggested), didn´t work with
my profile, somewhat disorderly and anarchic. Neither patience
abounded...(infinite on Rodolfo´s at the moment of minimum
details of the instrument finish)
Up to that time, there was not many information available
about these australian instruments: the incredible
video "The Seville concert" (in a bad copy on VHS format),
where appear a few seconds of Jhon Williams at the Greg Smallman´s
workshop, and the posibility to check some guitar, owned by a
renowned female argentine guitarist, from this author.
At the moment of reading this, young people must imagine a world without
internet, nor DVD´s: just pressing the pause on the video-tape
player, and try to see in that blurred and shaking image the
"new miracle invention".
don´t want to forget to name my friend Benjamín Hachuel for
his valuable contribution for this model, who helped me to understand
many things about new materials and techniques, and overall for
encourage my curiosity and "bother me" permanently.
