Pierre Abondance builds guitars and also ancient instruments. Before settling in the Périgord, he was the restorer emeritus of the Musical Instruments Museum in Paris. Those who have had the opportunity to hear or try his guitars, are sure to enter the restricted circle of his admirers.
The guitar presented here is a "Libellule" model. The Torres-type format corresponds to the usual one used by this luthier, but the bracing is the result of his reflexions on the different forces applied to the bridge on the top. The result is more than successful; both in the response, with a vibrant, balanced and reactive instrument, and also in the sound quality, with a velvety, expressive and deep tone.
