Paolo Coriani began his career with a five-year apprenticeship (1975-1980) at the Massetti workshop in Modena (a workshop created by the two brothers Primo and Romolo Massetti in 1922). In 1984, Paolo Coriani opened his own workshop where he built guitars and hurdy-gurdies (one of these earned him a third prize at the Bagnacavallo Young Luthiers Competition). Besides acquiring traditional Spanish guitar-making techniques, he became interested in the most advanced and innovative instrument building methods of the time. During his frequent trips to Paris, he made friends with Christian Aubin and the discovery of Aubin's Torres 1867 - FE23 (restored by Bouchet) was a decisive influence on his own work.


This beautiful guitar by Paolo Coriani is inspired by a 1952 Hermann Hauser. The aesthetics and the workmanship are, as usual with this luthier, of a remarkable quality, the woods are superb. Soundwise, the notes are full, colored, vibrant and singing. The tone is deep, woody with a magnificent expressiveness: a gorgeous instrument to discover...
